Antitrust and regulation

The competition and regulation team of Contreras Velozo has been recognized in the specialized international rankings (Chambers and Partners, Legal500, Latin Lawyer, and others) as one of the main and most prominent ones in the country.

Our expert lawyers have represented clients from the most diverse industries, in both regulated and unregulated sectors, in many of the most relevant cases before the Free Competition Defense Court (Tribunal de Defensa de la Libre Competencia, or TDLC) and the Supreme Court, and in investigations initiated by the National Economic Prosecutor’s Office (Fiscalía Nacional Económica, or FNE).

Likewise, our competition and regulation group has represented clients in notifications of proposed mergers before the FNE and in civil lawsuits derived from anticompetitive illicit acts. In addition, it has designed and implemented numerous compliance programs and often provided advice to related government agencies on the preparation and implementation of regulations, and on the compliance with antitrust norms.

Our lawyers are also professors and researchers in several universities in this area of expertise.
