Mijares Angoitia Cortés y Fuentes SC

04 December 2014

Mexico

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.
