Corporate and M&A
This is our strongest and most creative practice and one of the leading M&A areas in Chile. As a full-service firm, this area calls on the combined efforts of our corporate, tax, finance, antitrust and labor attorneys.
This area’s work includes: joint ventures; private equity and venture capital deals; domestic and cross-border acquisition of private and public (listed) companies; complex corporate mergers and spin-offs; corporate restructuring transactions with and without change of control; structuring and restructuring of legal investment vehicles; participation in due diligence processes and data room preparation. We handle tenders of companies or assets; design of acquisition strategies and offers to purchase companies and/or assets; contingency analysis; preparation of preliminary purchase agreements; negotiation and drafting of purchase and shareholders’ agreements; securing prior approval from the pertinent regulators; structuring of financing and security packages; and the drafting of related documents.
We have assisted major foreign companies in the acquisition of large companies listed in Chile, which has included tender offers staged simultaneously in Chile and the United States.
