The Antitrust Review of the Americas 2014

Mexico

In Mexico, antitrust practice has been, since its creation, one of the most sophisticated and complex topics in Mexican law. This has caused a number of changes in both institutions and legislation, most of them related to increasing powers from antitrust authorities and sanctions for those that breach antitrust law in Mexico, making it an extremely agile practice in Mexico. This has caused an important concern for many companies, local and international, which have implemented antitrust compliance policies and programmes, in order to avoid an investigation and, possibly, a sanction. Consumers have also become more aware of the effectiveness and necessity of having strong antitrust institutions, and the media closely watches any relevant antitrust cases and quickly communicates them to the general public.
