Antitrust

Legal Representation and Advice before the Mexican Antitrust Commission

At the end of the year of 1992 the Federal Law of Economic Competition (Ley Federal de Competencia Economica) was published in the Official Federal Daily Press (Diario Oficial de la Federación) in Mexico, with the objective of being implemented and enforced by the Federal Competition Commission (Comisión Federal de Competencia) starting 1993. Since then it has been regulating all antitrust matters related to economic activity in and with Mexico, including joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, business competition and strategic alliances.
