Jara Del Favero Abogados‘ 2018 merger with Ried Fabres, which operated as Jara del Favero & Ried Fabres, was unwound in early 2020. The eight-strong banking and finance practice is experienced in corporate finance and structuring transactions, both at local and international levels. The team is co-led by Felipe Ovalle, who is recommended for mining-related finance transactions; Sven Herlin, primarily financings for real estate projects and technology companies; and corporate finance specialist Alvaro Caviedes. Appointed associate practice director in May 2020, Christian Schiessler provides key second line support on financing, capital markets and corporate matters.

Jara del Favero Abogados recently reverted to its former independent status, following the unwinding of its 2018 merger with Ried Fabres in early 2020. The sizeable 20-strong group comprises partners and associates with extensive experience in advising companies on corporate matters and M&A, including local and cross-border deals. The principal advisers are commercial and corporate law specialist Sven Herlin; capital markets expert Alvaro Caviedes; Felipe Ovalle (commercial and civil law, securities, M&A, project finance and infrastructure); and Manuel Jiménez, who has notable pharmaceutical sector experience. A capable second line of advisers includes Andrea Abascal (a partner as of February 2020), and experienced associates Marina Junge (who has over a decade at the firm) and Julio Trucco, who was appointed real estate practice director in January 2021.
