Mauricio Jaramillo, whom market sources recommend in particular for his handling of restrictive practice cases, leads the eight-strong practice at Gómez-Pinzón Abogados (GPA). With support from senior associate Victor Ayalde Lemos, Jaramillo advised Procter & Gamble on an SIC investigation against four major companies for unduly restricting invoice circulation in the factoring markets; in a rare decision, in September 2018 the competition authority accepted a consent decree to close the investigation without any penalties. In other work examples, the team assisted Aseo Urbano with the merger control assessment and filing before the antitrust authority regarding its acquisition by Veolia. Other clients include Tetra Pak, Argos, Valorem and ExxonMobil. Associate Natalia Franco is also a name to note.
