Handling M&A control and filings before the competition authorities, the representation of clients in investigations carried out by the FNE, and antitrust litigation before the TDLC and the Supreme Court, the team at DLA Piper Chile is most active in the consumer product manufacture, pharmaceutical, telecoms, tech, chemicals and energy industries. It has also recently developed an antitrust/competition compliance offering that undertakes training, internal investigations and economic behavioral analysis. The office’s regulated markets and antitrust department is co-led by Felipe Bahamondez and counsel Carolina Bawlitza, a 2018-hire from the FNE where she worked in investigations, M&A control and leniency matters during the course of a decade. Former counsel Blanca Palumbo left to join the National Electricity Coordinator (CEN) as counsel in October 2019. However, since publication, the team has been further strengthened with the October-2020 hire of Sofia O’Ryan; with over a decade’s experience in the sector, she arrives from the FNE where she was coordinator of the antimonopolistic practices’ dvision.
