Carlos Chávez

Carlos pioneered competition and antitrust law in Mexico, where he was one of the first lawyers to specialize in regulated industries. He brings enormous technical expertise and over 15 years of professional experience to the table.

His advice benefits clients as he is able to tap his invaluable experience obtained from participating in some of the most complex transactions and proceedings before Mexican regulators and competition agencies.

Carlos frequently represents railway operators and telecommunications carriers in regulatory and antitrust proceedings.
