The ‘excellent‘ four-member practice at Prieto Abogados routinely assists with contentious and non-contentious cases before the TDLC and represents clients before the FNE in cartel, abuse of dominant position and other potential competition law breaches. The ‘very complete team‘ also fields specialists in FNE-led merger control reviews and compliance programmes. Leading the antitrust group, Benjamín Grebe assists with preventative work, merger issues, FNE investigations and cases before the TDLC; his recent caseload includes alleged abuse-of-dominance and cartel claims. In September 2021, competition law and regulation specialist Andrea Von Chrismar was promoted to counsel from senior associate, while associates Santiago Errázuriz and Daniella Ibaceta round out the antitrust team.

One of the most prestigious firms around for energy work‘, Prieto Abogados is a go-to practice for energy and natural resources sector-related regulatory matters, including applications for licenses, enforcement matters involving regulatory bodies, administrative and antitrust law, and litigation and arbitration. It also consistently advises on an enviable pipeline of renewable energy projects, as well as headline M&A deals in the energy space. The practice’s principal figures are ‘outstanding lawyer‘ and M&A head Juan Tagle, whose broad practice covers electricity generation, distribution and transmission markets, and natural gas transportation and distribution; corporate law head Fernando Bravo; compliance leader José Andrés Pascual; and Nicolás Yuraszeck, who is ‘helpful beyond his mandate‘. In March 2021, the practice recruited counsels Federico Rodríguez (natural resources-related regulatory and transactional matters), and Andrea Von Chrismar (‘excellent for regulatory, environmental and energy matters‘) from the former Baraona Fischer y Cía and Quintanilla Abogados, respectively, while former associate Camila Kutz departed the practice in June 2021. Former practice co-head Claudio Undurraga passed away in July 2022.
