Dispute resolution

Within: Dispute resolution

M & M Bomchil has a prominent dispute resolution practice, which is highly sought after for its specialist expertise in economic regulation (particularly energy issues), administrative law and complex arbitration. Guido Tawil, who is widely regarded as a ‘powerhouse in contentious energy matters’, heads the arbitration department; he recently acted in conjunction with Francisco Gutiérrez, María Inés Corrá, counsel Rafael Mariano Manóvil and newly promoted partner Federico Campolieti to represent a major multinational company in arbitration proceedings (under ICC, UNCITRAL and domestic rules) brought by local subcontractors arising from a state contract terminated by the government. In another administrative law-related case, Tawil and Corrá are assisting several wheat mills with various claims against the government concerning the lack of compensation for commercialising flour in the domestic market at subsidised prices. Javier Petrantonio heads the litigation practice and spearheaded the team (which also comprised counsel Hugo Lafalce and senior associate Martín Torres Girotti) that represented Carrefour in four significant claims stemming from the acquisition of Argentine supermarket chains. The group has also recently undertaken work for Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, Peugeot Citroën and Siemens.

Within: TMT

M & M Bomchil’s practice is led jointly by media and entertainment expert Marcelo Bombau and telecoms specialist Francisco Gutiérrez ¬– it also draws on the experience of administrative law partner Federico Campolieti and IP head Adrián Furman. The firm covers all the bases in TMT law, with notable firepower across the full spread of regulatory, transactional and contentious matters. In a highlight example of its ability to combine transactional and regulatory expertise, the firm advised Viacom on the corporate and regulatory aspects of its $45m investment in Telefe. On the contentious side, the firm is representing Iplan in several regulatory disputes concerning interconnections between fixed and mobile telecommunications networks. Media conglomerate Grupo Clarín is also a key client and the team recently advised it on numerous issues stemming from the new legal framework for information and communication technologies.
