What the team is known for

Respected full-service firm boasting significant expertise advising national and multinational companies in competition matters. Held in high esteem for its strength in merger controls and contentious matters before the TDLC and the Supreme Court, as well as representation in investigations carried out by the FNE. Experienced acting in cases related to the medical, aviation, retail, media and energy sectors. Chubb and Joyvio are new client wins for the firm.

Strengths

Sources recognise its "strong presence in antitrust matters," with one client highlighting the team's "competition knowledge and its ability to offer advice beyond what the law states."

Work highlights

Instructed by Turner International Latin America to advise on the pre-merger investigation regarding the acquisition of Canal del Fútbol by the Chilean Football Association (ANFP) and the transmission rights of the Chilean League for the next 15 years.

Notable practitioners

Head of department Juan Cristóbal Gumucio is valued by sources, who praise his judgement and in-depth analytical skills, as well as "the ability to deliver advice that does not come from simply reading the law." One impressed client enthuses: "In my opinion he is one of the best lawyers in the firm, a very competent professional who inspires confidence in his clients."

Overview

We represent clients both in litigation and out of court, with the goal of ensuring that their businesses comply with the regulations governing market competition. With a business-oriented focus, we aim to help our clients, especially their commercial areas, conduct their business competitively by identifying issues that may generate contingencies, and by protecting their interests before the National Economic Prosecutor’s Office (Fiscalía Nacional Económica, “FNE”) and the Competition Court (Tribunal de Defensa de la Libre Competencia, “TDLC”).

Our counselling focuses on:

Merger control, where we coordinate with the corporate team handling the transaction in order to analyze potential antitrust risks and help devise mitigations. We also represent clients in filing the relevant consultations/applications before the TDLC and/or the FNE (including the negotiation of out-of-court settlements); in contentious and non-contentious cases before the TDLC in connection with various aspects of business, such as collusion and concerted practices, exclusion, price-fixing and discrimination, resale price maintenance, vertical restrictions, unfair competition, and abuse of a dominant position; and in intellectual property matters.
