Mijares Angoitia Cortes y Fuentes SC

20 December 2018

Mexico

Francisco Fuentes and Pilar Mata lead the nine-lawyer team at Mijares Angoitia Cortes y Fuentes SC, which represented Fintech Advisory in its acquisition of capital stock in Empresas, one of Mexico’s largest construction companies. The team also advised ABB in obtaining clearance from the COFECE to acquire General Electric’s Industrial Solutions business unit.

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 Railroad also called on Mijares to represent the railroad’s local subsidiaries. COFECE’s investigation to determine whether there was sufficient competitive conditions in the market for railway cargo transportation within Mexico closed in February 2018.
