Who’s Who Legal nominee and practice leader Francisco Fuentes-Ostos says the antitrust group at Mijares Angoitia Cortés y Fuentes SC has got stronger and busier every year. “I personally invest more time to the antitrust practice every year,” he says. Two partners from the litigation group assist with cases, and between both groups, 13 associates take on antitrust work – five in the antitrust group specifically.
Grupo Televisa, Latin America’s largest television company, is a key client and one that kept the firm busy in 2014. Fuentes advised the company for both defence and complainant work, defending cable subsidiaries Cablemás and TVI against price-fixing and market-division allegations, and Televisa against accusations of monopolisation, but also bringing a complaint on behalf of Televisa against its archrival Telmex and others alleging an illegal agreement in the fixed telephony and broadband market. Mexico’s new telecoms regulator has declared Telmex a dominant company, so no doubt the firm can expect more work to follow. Elan Pharmaceutical and BP are also clients.
Mijares, Angoitia, Cortés y Fuentes, S.C. was founded in 1994, integrating a team of highly-qualified lawyers focused on offering professional, sophisticated and quality legal services to satisfy its clients’ business needs. Today, as a leading firm in the Mexican market, its level of expertise is well-recognized in various practice areas. Deeply committed to quality and responsiveness, the firm has consolidated its status as one of the preeminent Mexican Law firms.
MACF’s antitrust group helps clients with merger reviews, cartel investigations and defense, and antitrust counseling and compliance. It has been involved in the most important mergers reviewed and monopolization cases investigated by the Mexican antitrust agencies.
