Julio Pellegrini has recently been involved in several of the most important antitrust cases in the country. Last year he successfully represented Equifax, the global leader in information solutions and one of the largest sources of consumer and commercial data, on a process before the Competition Court seeking to approve the creation of a new credit reporting system in the country. He also represented Cámara Chilena de la Construcción (CChC), the most important trade and union association in our country, obtaining a favourable decision from the Competition Court that recommended enacting new legislation to prevent anticompetitive behaviours from electricity distribution companies. Among other cases, he is currently representing Scotiabank in a regulatory proceeding before the Competition Court as well as the Supreme Court regarding the vertical integration between banks and the company that operates the credit and debit card network.
