Jointly led by esteemed Alejandro Ferrer and Arturo Gerbaud, Alemán, Cordero, Galindo & Lee‘s corporate and M&A practice is well regarded in the market, not least because of the team’s wide-ranging expertise in sector-related matters. The sizeable department is a regular legal advisor to both purchasers and sellers in complex local and cross-border transactions, and offer a multitude of services related to acquisitions, mergers and share transfers, as well as corporate and regulatory matters. Petroamérica Terminal, Phoenix Tower International, Julius Bäer and Citibank feature on the practice’s longstanding client list. Standout work included the team’s advice to the Panamanian branch of The Bank of Nova Scotia on its $550m acquisition of Scotiabank (Panama), following its winding-up. The ‘very good‘ Eloy Alfaro is highly experienced and also active in the corporate arena, where associate Rita de la Guardia offers key support.
