Carlos Chávez – Galicia Abogados S.C.

Galicia Abogados S.C.’s ‘top-notch’ practice is a key component of its overall offering to major companies undertaking deals at the very top of the corporate market in Mexico. The group includes not only dedicated professionals in the competition and antitrust field but also experts in a variety of the country’s major industries, giving the team a robust offering when it comes to navigating the respective regulatory challenges in different sectors, as well as counsel experienced in dealing with the competition authority. The practice is led by co-managing partner of the firm Christian Lippert, one of the best known experts in this area in Mexico. Fellow practice co-head Carlos Chávez is also a recognised antitrust expert in the market; he advises a number of major companies on day-to-day compliance, and has an especially strong client base in the telecoms sector. The practice also houses one of the market’s next generation partners in Juan Carlos Burgos; in recent years he has regularly come up against the competition authority in some of its most significant sectoral-investigations. Counsel Gerardo Rodríguez supports on complex merger control applications, while senior associate Maite Celorio strengthens the practice group’s regulatory offering.
