Its interdisciplinary approach is unique in Mexico and allows the firm to design and implement creative and comprehensive solutions in matters of antitrust, arbitration, arbitration, corporate law, international trade disputes, international treaties, investment banking and strategic planning.

We are leaders and pioneers in Competition Law, the interdisciplinary integration of the services of renowned lawyers and economists gives us the opportunity to provide our clients with a unique advice.

We are a highly reliable firm, with extensive knowledge and expertise in conducting merger proceedings, investigations of monopolistic practices, public biddings and regulated sectors. Our experience and business perception lead us to foresee our client's problems, propose solutions to reduce regulatory risks and maximize the chances of success.

Our experience becomes more relevant in light of the Constitutional Reform in Telecommunications and Competition matters enacted last 2013, by which the competition authority has gained more intrusive powers that will pose mayor challenges to companies onwards. The 2013 Reform also ordered the creation of the new Federal Economic Competition Commission, whose appointed Commissioners are in a vast majority economists (6 out of 7 –the remaining one is a lawyer). This situation highlight SAI's interdisciplinary integration because of the abilities of our professionals to understand and speak the same language that the new regulator.
