/ Competition and Antitrust

Alessandri’s competition team is recognized for its international focus. Our attorneys bring together decades of experience in all areas of Competition Law, including cartels and abuse of dominance, in proceedings under the former voluntary regime and the current mandatory merger control regime. We represent clients before the National Economic Prosecutor’s Office and in contentious and non-contentious proceedings before the Court for the Defense of Free Competition.

In addition, members of our team have worked in the Chilean Competition Authority (the FNE), which allows us to provide our clients with a unique vision and a combination of legal, economic and regulatory knowledge.

Our team is prepared to provide our clients with specialized advice in a wide range of industries, helping them to successfully develop, sustain and protect their businesses. Even more so in view of the modifications to the Chilean Competition Law, which is the most relevant for companies that do business in our country since it introduces the merger control system and the obligation of prior notification of operations.

Apart from working in litigation and proceedings before the National Economic Court and Prosecutor’s Office, our lawyers advise on the planning and structuring of transactions and on the development of compliance programs prepared according to the needs of each of our clients.
