Francisco Fuentes-Ostos continues to lead the nine-lawyer team at MIJARES ANGOITIA CORTÉS Y FUENTES SC with partner Pilar Mata Fernández. The firm handles issues for some of Mexico’s most influential companies, with an expanding client base after years of Televisa being the firm’s biggest client. Mijares represented Grupo Gondi – a private paper and packaging company – in connection with WestRock’s increased equity position in Grupo Gondi, which COFECE approved in April 2017. That same month, the firm also won approval for Nexxus Capital’s investment in Transnetwork, a business-to-business electronic cross-border processing and payment platform.
The firm is active on the behavioural side as well, as can be seen by its successful representation of Grupo Televisa and its subsidiary regarding alleged monopolist practices in the advertising markets – including alleged tying arrangements and refusals to deal. Union Pacific also called on Mijares to represent the railroad’s local subsidiaries. COFECE is conducting an investigation to determine whether there is sufficient competitive conditions in the market for railway cargo transportation within Mexico, and the firm notes that the outcome could generate a substantial change in the country’s railroad market.
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 practice focuses on merger control, and cartel and abuse of market power investigations before the Mexican Economic Competition Commission (“COFECE”) and the Federal Telecommunications Institute (“FTI” and with COFECE, the “Antitrust Agencies”).
Also, MACF’s antitrust practice has a specialized group of antitrust litigators who focus on challenging rulings issued by the Antitrust Agencies with Mexican Federal Courts. This group allows MACF to provide its clients with a comprehensive assessment on their antitrust needs since the beginning of the procedure.
Partners Francisco Fuentes-Ostos and Pilar Mata Fernández lead the antitrust team at MACF. The team also includes four associates and three part time law clerks.
