Diego Baldomir - Guyer & Regules

Within: Banking and finance

Flexible’, ‘very experienced’ and ‘rigorously analytical’, Guyer & Regules’ comprehensive banking practice distinguishes itself through its ability to ‘innovate to adapt to clients’ ever-changing requirements’. Among the names to note, high-profile figure Nicolás Herrera is ‘simply number one in the banking area’ and co-leads the department alongside Nicolás Piaggio (‘deep knowledge of local and international markets and regulations’) and Álvaro Tarabal (‘a source of constant consultation and advice’). Piaggio had a banner year, which saw him lead several of the firm’s most significant deals, including advising Enjoy on its $300m international debt offering and acting as deal counsel on a $100m trust issuance by toll-road operator Corporación Vial del Uruguay. Florencia Castagnola combines ‘great negotiation skills with efficient and effective service delivery’ and acted with Piaggio to assist the joint bookrunners with a $1.2bn global bond offering by the Republic of Uruguay. The group also benefits from the senior expertise of Juan Manuel Mercant ¬(‘an excellent lawyer with a pro-business approach’), Diego Baldomir and senior associate Marcos Payssé.

The ‘experienced and client-focused’ practice at Guyer & Regules finds favour for its ability to ‘foster good relationships with everyone, including counterparties and state agencies’. Clients also appreciate its ‘very broad scope of advice’, ‘effective execution of cross-border transactions’ and ‘timely response times’. The team, which handles a comprehensive spread of corporate finance, M&A and regulatory matters, is led jointly by high-profile sector specialist Nicolás Herrera, who is ‘still the best in his field’, Nicolás Piaggio and Álvaro Tarabal. In a key highlight, Piaggio and Herrera paired up to assist Chilean casino operator Enjoy with its $173.1m acquisition of the remaining stake in Baluma. Other recent work includes Piaggio and Corina Bove’s advice to Bacardi-Martini on the sale of its Uruguayan operations to a subsidiary of Cepas Group; while on the regulatory side, ‘rising star’ Javier Berdaguer advised Terminales Graneleras Uruguayas on contract renegotiations following the implementation of a new phytosanitary protocol between Uruguay and China.
