Corporate and M&A

Within: Corporate and M&A

Co-led by Carlos Valverde and Victor Garita, the corporate and M&A practice at domestic full-service firm Facio & Cañas advises on market entry, free trade zone regulations, joint ventures, M&A deals and corporate restructuring. Notable recent work saw the very active Carlos Oreamuno assist Cinemark with the expansion of its business in Costa Rica; and advise AT&T on its establishment of a corporate vehicle and the contractual structure for its entry into the Costa Rican telecoms sector. In other work, Valverde led advice to Veoo Holdings on its acquisition of InternetQ; and assisted Santa Rita with the termination of a local distributorship for its brand Viña Carmen, as well as the transition to a new distributor. Another key feature of the practice is day-to-day corporate advice to local and multinational companies, such as Fujitsu, Conair and Cisco Systems Costa Rica. Managing partner Sergio Solera is also active in the department.
