BASHAM RINGE Y CORREA SC’s antitrust group is headed by Amilcar Peredo Rivera. He works alongside one partner and four associates. The firm now boasts two ex-COFECE associates: Carmina Paredes and Fernanda Garza. Garza previously held the position of deputy director at the competition authority. The firm is representing two clients in COFECE investigations as the agency probes the pharmaceutical industry and the market for Mexican-government issued bonds.

The team acted for BASF as it purchased Bayer’s divested vegetable seeds business, a remedy the enforcer required from Bayer to complete its acquisition of Monsanto. The firm advised both LyondellBasell and A Schulman in their tie-up of two plastic manufacturers. It represented Frutarom in its sale to International Flavours and Fragrances and Brazilian steel company Gerdau in completing the purchase of an additional 50% of Gerdau Corsa. The team helped Panasonic secure a 90% reduction in a fine issued for alleged gun jumping in a deal.
