Jaime Trujillo - Baker McKenzie S.A.S.

Within: Banking and finance

The practice group at Baker McKenzie S.A.S. has ‘unrivalled knowledge’ of banking and securities law; 2018 highlight mandates saw a team led by ‘excellent’ practice co-head Ricardo Trejos advise Canada’s Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP) on a $140m investment in real estate investment PE vehicle Fondo Inmobiliario Colombia, managed by its fiduciary subsidiary. In other work, the team continues to advise Brookfield Infrastructure Group on the financing of its acquisition of Gas Natural. The department, while small, has been strengthened notably: April 2018 saw the arrival as partner of Andrés Crump from Brookfield Asset Management; he now co-leads the practice in conjunction with Trejos and highly regarded acting global chair Jaime Trujillo. Subsequently, in October 2018, Sebastian Boada was hired from the Office of Financial Superintendence; both he and fellow senior associate Daniel Botero are noted members of the team. Other clients include Sacyr, JP Morgan, Banco Itaú and Scotiabank Colpatria.

Practice co-heads Jaime Trujillo (recently named regional chair for Latin America), Juan Felipe Vera and Andrés Crump (who joined in April 2018 and is ‘strongly recommended­’) led the advice to Brookfield Asset Management on its $560m acquisition of a 59% stake in Gas Natural, a transaction on which the team had worked since 2017. Other mandates included assisting Peabody Energy Corporation with the proposed acquisition of an 80% stake in Drummond International; Altra Investments on the sale of Proenfar to Weener Plastics; and Farma de Colombia on the acquisition of certain assets from Laboratorios Quipropharma. Well-regarded senior associate Natalia Villalba is ‘gaining profile’; fellow senior associate Natalia Gutierrez joined from Brigard Urrutia in October 2018.

  • The New Turkish Code of Obligations: Important Changes for Leases of Residential & Business Premises

    For decades, the primary Turkish laws governing leases of residential and business premises have been the Law on Leasing Real Property dated May 27, 1955 (the “Lease Law”) and the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 818 dated April 22, 1926 (the “Obligations Code”). Both of these laws, however, will be repealed and replaced with the new Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 dated January 11, 2011 (the “New Obligations Code”), which will enter into force on July 7, 2012.
