Anne-Laure Marraud des Grottes


Office(s) :



Today, as a French lawyer in charge of the French Desk of DS Abogados, Anne-Laure advises French and foreign companies in Chile.

She began with experiences in the legal unit of the French competition authority and in the Competition Department of prominent law firm. She worked closely with the DGCCRF (department of investigation in competition) in responding to the investigation requests. Through those experiences, she worked on

  • market issues (market analyses and definitions),
  • the position of companies on defined markets,
  • supposed cartels (assistance with investigations – drafting of opinions),
  • merger notifications,
  • appeals of decisions of the Competition Authority,
  • and more broadly advice to companies in the context of opening up to competition.

Then, she joined the legal departments of French and International companies. These experiences allow her a practical approach to the mechanisms of private international law. Indeed, she has advised in-house legal departments on various branches of law such as business law, company law, social law, contract law, economic law, competition law, industrial property law and advertising law.

Representing some of these companies, she has been a member and has actively participated in:

  • the SRI: Syndicate of Internet Advertising Control, of which the legal director of Yahoo France was a member
  • the ARPP: Professional advertising regulatory authority, itself a member of EASA at European level and of ICAS and ICC, the latter at international level. All the major players in advertising in France are represented.

She has also worked on issues of the Telecoms Regulatory Authority (ART).

In Chile, she set up QualiConsulting Chile through which she offered product market researches and a quality audit service to entrepreneurs and small businesses, mainly in the food and clothing sector and in the hotel industry.
