Arias‘ corporate and finance department shines thanks to its ‘deep working knowledge of the local Nicaraguan laws across all sectors‘. Ana Teresa Rizo and key associate Maryeling Guevara, who ‘makes sure her client has the necessary protection in every deal‘, successfully obtained concentration authorisation from the Nicaraguan Competition Authority for the acquisition of Monsanto by the firm’s client Bayer. Associate Rodrigo Ibarra and Gustavo-Adolfo Vargas are further key figures in the exceptionally strong team. In another recent work highlight, Bertha Argüello, who ‘gives sound advice, is always available, prompt with work and professional‘, assisted DEG-Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft with the structuring and packaging of its long-term debt. Roger Pérez is also a key contact. Edgard Torres and Mario Novoa left the department to join Dentons Muñoz in the second half of 2018.
