Mijares Angoitia Cortes y Fuentes SC

14 January 2020

Mexico

Francisco Fuentes and Pilar Mata lead the nine-lawyer team at MIJARES ANGOITIA CORTÉS Y FUENTES SC. The group is representing a pair of Mexican credit report entities, TransUnion de Mexico and Dun & Bradstreet Mexico, against COFECE. The enforcer accused TransUnion of price discrimination and Dun & Bradstreet of an illegal refusal to deal with another credit report company. The firm brought TransUnion and two of its senior executives through the probe without charges, but the agency found Dun & Bradstreet liable in a decision the company is now appealing. The firm acts for Servicio Pan Americano de Proteccion during an investigation of potential monopolistic practices in the market for vaults, armoured car transportation, money processing and the long-distance transportation of valuables. COFECE fined the company for price-fixing, client allocation and exchange of competitively sensitive information.

Mijares advised SPV on its purchase of a 90% stake in two photovoltaic projects owned by Eosol – which required a complex restructuring – and Citigroup on its agreement to distribute Chubb’s non-life insurance products. The firm acted for transportation company Fultra and private equity firm Alta Growth Capital on its purchase of trailer manufacturer Fruehauf de Mexico, and for Grupo Televisa in ex post merger control proceeding before the Federal Telecommunications Institute.
