Patricia Silberman  - Carey

Within: Corporate and M&A

Highly rated in the market for structuring M&A deals, Carey is 'a full-service firm with well-trained lawyers, who are highly responsive, experienced, connected and practical'. Its expertise includes takeovers through public offerings, minority share purchases, acquisitions of companies or asset packages, private equity transactions, and company and asset purchases during insolvency or reorganisation scenarios. Recent areas of growth for the practice include venture-capital deals, including equity investments and buyouts of local start-ups by foreign companies, while the compliance practice is highly rated for advising on risk prevention and mitigation. The active client list includes MetLife, Danaher, UnitedHealth, Scotiabank, Brookfield and Enel. In a deal involving several jurisdictions (and in a heavily regulated sector), Pablo Iacobelli, Cristián Eyzaguirre and Francisco Guzmán  led advice to pharmaceutical distribution company Cardinal Health its $6.1bn acquisition of Medtronic's medical supply business. Other notable mandates included advising British private equity firm CVC Capital Partners on the local aspects of its $4.7bn acquisition of a 20 per cent stake in Gas Natural Fenosa; and assisting multinational pharmaceutical, chemical and life sciences company Merck with the Chilean aspects of the global 4.2bn sale of its health consumer business to Procter & Gamble. Firm chairman Jorge Carey is 'visionary' and 'a brilliant strategist', managing partner Jaime Carey 'provides excellent support' and Marcos Ríos is the compliance contact. Claudio Lizana,  Salvador Valdés, Francisco Acuña and Guillermo Acuña, along with Jorge Ugarte, Cristián Figueroa and Francisco Ugarte are also all highly regarded, as is counsel Patricia Silberman.
