Cariola’s main mission is to fully satisfy the legal needs of our clients in any area of the law, through high quality advice provided in a comprehensive, efficient and appropriate manner. With this objective in mind, Cariola’s lawyers propose simple, precise legal solutions, designed for each particular client or case.
Family Offices and Holdings
The vast majority of medium-sized companies, and also large companies and economic groups in our country, are controlled by business families or private holdings. There is no doubt, in our experience, that the companies that have developed and been consolidated over time are those that have managed to adequately combine the three areas that revolve around them: property, family and management.
Over the years, our firm has participated in the purchase and sale of both family offices and holdings, as well as in the development and implementation of corporate and family governance structures that have facilitated the peaceful and orderly incorporation of new Investors or new generations into the ownership and management of a family business, thus allowing them to last over time.
Each holding or family office has its own characteristics and realities, demanding “tailored” solutions. In this regard, our firm has lawyers with vast experience in corporate (preparation of ad-hoc corporate by-laws, shareholder agreements, family protocols, etc.), tax (design of an efficient property structure; corporate reorganization) and inheritance matters (advice on the drafting and preparation of wills), which allows us to provide comprehensive advice and high added value in these matters.
