Colombia > Competition and antitrust

OlarteMoure’s practice receives praise for ‘providing holistic and applicable solutions in a changing regulatory environment’. Founding partner Juan Guillermo Moure heads the practice along with associate director of litigation Juan Felipe Acosta and competition co-ordinator Isabella Herrera. The IP-specialised boutique has been growing its competition practice, particularly on the litigation side by working on unfair competition cases involving large claims. The team is currently defending MVH Inversiones in a suit brought by a former supplier turned competitor, as well as advising the company on two counterclaims, on cancellation actions before the Trademark Office and on annulment actions of the supplier’s marks before the administrative courts. In terms of merger control, the team assisted Nutresa with various merger control procedures, culminating in that which saw the company’s sale to Comeca Group affiliate Prodenvases.
