Jessica Medina – Pino Elizalde Abogados

Pino Elizalde Abogados fields an increasingly relevant competition practice that handles both abuse of market power issues and merger-control matters. It has particular niche expertise as regards the brewing industry, where it recently acted for AB InBev on the filings associated with its merger with SABMiller, and is also growing its practice in the downstream segment of the hydrocarbons sector, where it works with a significant LNG player. Practice co-head Marco ‘Valentín’ Elizalde -who led on the AB InBev matter- has extensive experience interacting with the Superintendence of Market Power Regulation, where fellow co-head, competition-specialised associate Jessica Medina formerly worked in-house.
