Overview

FN’s TMT team has two subareas: one in charge of telecom and media, with emphasis on regulation, litigation and complex negotiations; and one focused on technology, data and cybersecurity, mainly devoted to compliance, preventive tasks, negotiations and projects.

The team is involved in matters across several industries (telecommunications and media content creation, energy, retail and e-commerce, finance and banking, entertainment and event production, pharmaceutical and cosmetics among others).

It advises companies regarding sectorial regulation; banking transactions and e-commerce; complex financial instruments; specialized contracting; information security, privacy and personal data protection; cross-border transactions involving technological services; technological transformation processes; prevention and compliance; antitrust procedures; substantive IP and information technology law; tariff setting processes and public-private interaction; and administrative procedures and litigation arising from these matters, among many others.

This expertise is what has attracted many of Chile’s biggest and most noticeable companies, such as VTR, subsidiary of  Liberty Global, and one of Chile’s big telecommunications’ companies; Walmart’s Chilean subsidiary; Falabella, one of the largest retailers of Latin America; Copec, the main oil and gas provider in Chile; Natura, the cosmetics empire; and the most important television channel in Chile; among others.
