Who Won with the Budweiser Transfer?


McDermott litigators filed suit for Chile’s CCU and its owners the Luksic family in order to obtain five brands of beer and more than US$300 million for transferring to AB InBev CCU’s rights to the Budweiser brand in Argentina, where it had a license to market the beer until 2025. McDermott previously filed a similar lawsuit in the US for Constellation and secured a license in perpetuity for the Corona brand from AB InBev.
