Argentina > Corporate and M&A Tier 4

Naveira Truffat Martínez Abogados (NTMA) is a market leader in distressed transactional work, which emanates from its core bankruptcy and restructuring practice, but has continued to successfully expand its mainstream corporate offering. The firm has proven itself adept at handling complex deals that require a combination of  bankruptcy, complex litigation and corporate expertise, but has also gained traction in vanilla deal processes, winning work from clients in the oil-and-gas, tech, retail and pharmaceutical sectors. Although transactions are a key area of focus, day-to-day corporate work has become an increasingly important source of fee income. The practice is co-led by Agustin Ferrari, who joined the firm as partner in 2021 and has spearheaded the team’s growth in the wider corporate market; and seasoned insolvency and dispute resolution specialist Oscar Martínez, who has extensive experience in distressed and non-distressed transactional matters. Tax and corporate structuring of counsel Javier Malamud brings additional corporate knowledge and capability to the table, with Valentin Martinez and Juan Sabia noted for the corporate law aspects of their practices. The team can also call on litigation and restructuring veteran Rafael Mallo, who has significant commercial law expertise, for additional senior input.

The NTMA team is excellent. From day one we had a great experience. The team was led by Valentín Martínez who accompanied us at all times on the advice provided.

The professional attention and the professional and personal bond that they build is noteworthy. In this way, the work carried out was much more efficient compared to other experiences we have had with other firms. We wish to highlight the work of Valentín Martínez who guided us throughout the process.

NTMA’s corporate and M&A practice has recently established itself with a notable presence in the market. Leveraged on the experience with their traditional clients and the drive of the new generations that lead this practice, they have established themselves as a new alternative in a highly competitive market. The drive and high level of involvement of the partners is combined with an important track record in leading local and international firms.

Agustín Ferrari stands out for his training at the best studios in Argentina and the United States. Having participated in numerous resonant transactions throughout his career, with studies at one of the most prestigious universities in the United States and his accumulated experience in New York firms, Agustín is highly qualified to practice and provide services in this area. I am aware of the high quality of his products as well as his orientation and focus on the business.
