An aggressive expansion

As Uruguayan frozen foods company Pagnifique eats its way into a bigger slice of the Latin American pie, a cast of lawyers came together to ink much-needed investment from a Chilean private equity fund.

When Chilean private equity fund Linzor Capital Partners bought 85 per cent of Uruguayan frozen foods company Pagnifique, it provided the company with another important step in the pioneering multilatina’s rapid upwards trajectory.

Linzor turned to Guyer & Regules, Pérez Alati, Grondona, Benites, Arntsen & Martínez de Hoz (h) and Latham & Watkins LLP to acquire the stake in Pagnifique, the pioneer of frozen baked goods in Uruguay, which was advised by FERRERE, Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira and Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP.
