Diez Canseco Competencia & PI

Competition and antitrust Tier 1

Diez Canseco Competencia & PI is the preferred adviser to a multitude of industry-leading companies seeking damage prevention, limitation and defence strategies across the spectrum of antitrust and competition matters. The firm is handling compliance reviews for the likes of UNACEM, Gloria Group and Alicorp, and successfully concluded proceedings before INDECOPI on behalf of Roche in a long-running competition dispute with pharmaceutical company Farmaindustria after taking over the case from another law firm. The strong trio of partners at the helm comprise: Luis Diez Canseco, who provides 'practical and strategic solutions’; litigator Robert Venero; and José Carlos Gonzáles, who has 'deep knowledge’ of competition law. Moreover, the team has been substantially strengthened, initially in March 2020 with the arrival of associate Verónica Carrasco, from Rubio Leguía Normand, and senior Danny Alcarraz from OSIPTEL; and subsequently (in May) with the incorporation of Daniel Schmerler as a partner - formerly at both OSINERGMIN and Indecopi, he arrives from the presidency of the International Confederation of Energy Regulators.
