Mijares Angoitia Cortés y Fuentes SC

Professional notice

Mexico

Who’s Who Legal: Competition nominee and practice leader Francisco Fuentes-Ostos says the antitrust group at MIJARES ANGOITIA CORTÉS Y FUENTES SC has got stronger and busier every year. In July, associate Pilar Mata Fernández joined the partnership, and four other associates handle antitrust matters full-time. Two partners from the litigation group assist with cases, and between both groups, a dozen associates take on antitrust work.

Grupo Televisa, Latin America’s largest television company, is a key client and one that kept the firm busy in 2015. Fuentes is defending the company against its designation by the country’s new telecoms regulator as a dominant company in the pay television market. The firm helped Televisa file its response to the designation in April, within the narrow 20-day window to do so. The firm is also acting for two clients in Cofece’s wide ranging credit industry investigation, and another client in the enforcer’s look at possible monpolistic practices in the Mexico City airport. In transactional work, the firm is guiding Ball through its tie-up with Rexam, approved in Mexico this August, and Banamex in the sale of part of its business to EVO.

Mijares, Angoitia, Cortés y Fuentes, S.C. was founded in 1994, integrating a team of highly-qualified lawyers focused on offering professional, sophisticated and quality legal services to satisfy its clients’ business needs. Today, as a leading firm in the Mexican market, its level of expertise is well-recognized in various practice areas. Deeply committed to quality and responsiveness, the firm has consolidated its status as one of the preeminent Mexican Law firms.  

MACF’s antitrust group helps clients with merger reviews, cartel investigations and defense, and antitrust counseling and compliance. It has been involved in the most important mergers reviewed and monopolization cases investigated by the Mexican antitrust agencies.
