Mijares Angoitia Cortes y Fuentes SC

10 January 2017

Mexico

Practice leader Francisco Fuentes-Ostos leads the nine-associate antitrust team at MIJARES ANGOITIA CORTÉS Y FUENTES SC with partner Pilar Mata Fernández. The firm’s biggest client was Televisa until about 2011, Fuentes-Ostos said, but the group has since expanded its client base. Last year, the practice represented Citibank’s subsidiary Banamex in the sale of its acquiring business to EVO Payments. Mijares also advised drinks can maker Ball Corp during the government’s review of its purchase of rival Rexam, and divestiture buyer Molson Coors in the AB InBev/SABMiller tie-up.

The team is acting on behalf of two clients in COFECE’s investigation regarding alleged relative monopolistic practices in the market for the generation, processing and trading of credit information. It is also involved in the commission’s slot inquiry at Mexico City’s international airport.
