Ecuador > Corporate and M&A

Probably best known for its profile in the public law sector, Cevallos Casals Balseca & Bilbao Abogados nevertheless has an active corporate practice that primarily advises on M&A advisory, due diligence, company formation and liquidation, the full range of company law matters (from company books to general meetings), and relations with regulatory bodies such as the Superintendencia de Compañías, Valores y Seguros. It also has a reputation for the negotiation of cooperation and subcontract agreements in the procurement space. The practice is co-led by Daniela Cevallos (administrative law, public procurement, TMT),  and Carlos Julio Balseca, who divides his time between corporate and tax matters. The partner-level team is completed by Roberto Bilbao who, in turn, divides his practice between corporate and dispute resolution, and also has a particular focus on the oil and gas industry. Senior associate Valeria Naranjo, who provides advice on all aspects of administrative contracts, including their drafting and negotiation, is also a key member of the team.
