Mergers and Acquisitions

Our firm advises buyers and sellers, including Mexican and international private equity funds and strategic corporate players, in mergers and acquisitions involving publicly traded and private companies in Mexico, as well as in the purchase and sale of cash-flow generating assets located in the country. 

We have structured and implemented transactions with varying degrees of complexity, including public takeover bids, corporate reorganizations and leveraged buyouts, with respect to companies engaged in a wide range of activities (financial services, insurance, telecommunications, pharmaceutical, retail, transportation and others), as well as different types of assets located throughout Mexico, such as hotels, power plants and other infrastructure assets. 

Our services include both the negotiation of transactional documentation such as purchase and subscription agreements, governance documents such as shareholders and control agreements and project documentation (including, depending on the type of project, engineering and construction agreements, operating and management agreements, distribution, licensing agreements and administrative services agreements). 

Our M&A practice group works hand in hand with our antitrust, tax, environmental and social and regulatory teams. Projects may also involve energy and infrastructure or real estate expertise provided by members of those practice areas
