Chile > Corporate and M&A

The 19-strong corporate and M&A practice at the Chilean office of Iberian law firm Cuatrecasas is consistently mandated on major M&A deals, joint ventures, distressed deals, commercial agreements, and asset and business transfers. Indeed, the team has undoubtedly punched above its weight during the course of 2022, registering a deal volume second only to the market’s largest full-service players. Beyond the strictly transactional sphere, other areas of strength include licensing, corporate restructuring (including due diligence), and contract drafting and negotiating. The office additionally specialises in private equity and venture capital investment matters. Coordinator of the corporate, M&A, banking, finance and capital markets practices, Roberto Guerrero V is a well-known expert in corporate restructuring, corporate governance, and domestic and international M&A; and Macarena RavinetJosefina Yávar and Tomás Kubick are also active M&A partners. Corporate and M&A partner Alfonso Ugarte relocated to the firm’s New York office in September 2022, since when (in May 2023) Fernanda Anguita -who advises technology, insurance, infrastructure, and food and beverage companies on corporate, contractual, and transactional matters- has been promoted to senior associate. Since publication, the practice group has been further strengthened with the hire of Michel Diban, formerly corporate/M&A practice co-head at Morales & Besa; concurrently, it also hired labour litigation specialist Raúl Fernández Toledo – previously at his own firm, Saez & Fernandez Abogados – to develop the office’s labour practice (both incorporations are effective as of December 2023).
