The lawyers in our Latin American Corporate/Private Equity group represent a broad spectrum of public and private companies, private equity and leveraged buy-out firms, special committees, closely held companies, management groups and individuals across the region. We have particular experience in the energy and natural resources sectors where our team has extensive experience in oil & gas, LNG, power and mining related transactions across the region. We also regularly advise regional, national and global investment banks in their roles as financiers or financial advisers in M&A transactions.
We handle transactions ranging in size and complexity from multibillion dollar, cross-border transactions to mid-size and smaller transactions. We are familiar with the foreign investment, tax, corporate, financing and intellectual property issues that arise in transactions in the region, and are accustomed to working with local counsel to find innovative, cost-effective solutions to investment objectives.
