Mergers and Acquisitions

FERRERE assists multinationals, medium-size companies, entrepreneurs and financial advisors on purchases, sales, mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, at both local and regional scale and in all business areas.

FERRERE participates in the majority of the most important deals in the jurisdictions in which it operates.

FERRERE’s broad resources and high specialization allow it to conduct meticulous due diligence procedures in record time, detecting potential contingencies and proposing practical solutions to avoid or minimize client exposure. In turn, the Mergers and Acquisitions practice group works in collaboration with the firm’s other areas to form a multidisciplinary team offering full-service legal advice.  

The firm has recently advised on M&A processes involving AIG,  CBS Outdoor, Discount Bank, Dufry, ExxonMobil, Hengyang Beef Industry, Metlife, Ontario Teacher’s Pension Plan Board (OTPP), Owen – Illinois, Parmalat, Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP) and Weyerhaeuser.

Multinational clients like Vale and Petrobras have turned to FERRERE on their multi-million dollar regional acquisitions, on which the firm’s Paraguay and Uruguay offices worked simultaneously.
