Mergers & Acquisitions
We have a leading M&A practice advising local and international buyers and sellers on asset and share transactions across different industries in Latin America.
Our clients not only value our technical knowledge and seamless execution capabilities but also praise our lawyers on their practical and creative approach to tackling complex situations in a transactional context.
Our client base ranges from international listed companies, to private equity funds, private companies, and family owned businesses. This unique mix provides us with an understanding of the whole range of complex issues that can arise in any single transaction.
Our services include, planning and structuring the transaction, tax planning, drafting and negotiation of preliminary documents, organizing auctions, setting up data rooms, performing due diligence investigations, drafting and negotiation of stock purchase or asset transfer agreements, creating performance based pricing structures, such as earn-outs, and ancillary agreements such as shareholders agreements and put and call options, management agreements, security documents to guarantee the payment of the purchase price, escrow agreements and any other documents required for a smooth transaction.
Considering that there is no “one size fits all” approach to M&A transactions, we deploy teams that are bespoke to each deal.
During all stages of the process, we work very closely with the client and its financial advisor to achieve a successful and efficient completion of the transaction.
When required, we also make filings with government agencies, such as competition authorities and other regulatory agencies.
Once a deal has been closed, when advising the buyer, we follow through by advising the client on all legal matters that are critical to facilitate a smooth transition and takeover of the business.
