RBB hires FNE’s Chief Economist for Mergers to open office in Chile

RBB is set to bolster its global footprint with a move into Latin America.

RBB is in the process of establishing an office in Santiago, Chile, which will provide a regional hub to deliver a comprehensive service to clients both in Chile and across Latin America.

As part of this strategic expansion, we are delighted to announce the hire of Vicente Lagos, the recent Chief Economist and acting Head of Mergers at the Fiscalía Nacional Económica (FNE) in Chile, who will be based in Santiago. We have also recently promoted to Principal Manuel Marfán, a Chilean national who has extensive experience advising both in Europe and across Latin America, and who will also be actively involved in the project.

Adrian Majumdar comments: “We have been doing more and more work in Chile and Latin America over the years. The opening of our office in Chile is a natural next step, and we are very pleased with both the arrival of Vicente and the promotion of Manuel. This will be RBB’s first office in the region and so is an exciting development.

This move into Latin America is the latest in a period of significant global growth for RBB. Over the past 18 months, we have opened five new offices across Helsinki, Milan, Oslo, Singapore and Sydney and now have 27 Partners and 230 competition economists in 14 offices worldwide.

Our experience and expertise means our clients have the best chance of success before competition authorities and courts.

We have unrivalled experience across the full range of issues presented by competition law and related associated litigation.
