Our broad expertise in corporate law and contracts, led us to become involved in all kind of sophisticated agreements and arrangements, either among private parties or with governmental entities and bodies, like leasings, underwritings, public offer of securities, calls, puts, options and other derivatives, exchange insurances, foreign debt capitalizations, joint ventures, trusts, mergers, acquisitions and restructurings of companies, including management and leveraged buy-outs, shareholders agreements, all types of collaterals, financings and loans, whether syndicated or not, including project financings, some of them with intervention of international agencies like IFC, IDB, OPIC and JBIC.
As a result of the privatization and deregulation policies carried out by the Argentine authorities between 1991 and 2001, we strongly participated in devising key corporate, acquisition, financing and operating contracts and structures concerning shipping and energy law.
Likewise, our firm became highly involved in the debt and equity restructuring process triggered by the 2002 Argentine default and subsequent contractual impact. More recently, we have been focusing our foreign trade and international financing practice in assisting clients to deal with the foreign exchange crisis that our country has been undergoing during the last years, including associated Argentine Central Bank and National Securities Commission regulations.
The firm also counts with external top senior consultants to seek advice on a case-by-case basis in certain specialized matters like tax, labor, criminal, and intellectual property law, which are not part of its core legal practice, but sometimes may be interconnected with it or particularly required by clients.
