Morales & Besa‘s six-strong practice routinely advises on complex and innovative capital markets deals. The firm is a counsel of choice for prestigious investment banks such as Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan, while on the issuer side, the team acts for prominent domestic corporations on their major capital and debt raising processes; in addition to the capital markets group’s transactional work for underwriters and issuers, it also assists both domestic and global funds and asset managers. The broad corporate finance practice of founding partner Guillermo Morales includes domestic and cross-border capital markets transactions, debt and equity offerings, liability management transactions, IPOs and follow-on offerings; while José Miguel Carvajal has extensive experience in financing companies through the issuances of bonds and commercial paper.
