Capital Markets

Our Capital Markets Department is a recognized leader in serving the banking and financial sector, as well as national and international clients in industries ranging from agribusiness through tourism seeking to finance their expansion and development.

We counsel on the issuance of equity and debt including corporate bond offerings, convertible bonds and trust certificates, and are advisors to issuers, underwriters and issuance organizers.  Our experts assist clients with transactions such as notes issuance, and the structuring of public and private financial trusts, open and closed mutual funds and other investment vehicles.  We can also advise on debt restructuring.

We work closely with global law firms in structuring initial public offerings (IPOs), takeover bids (OPAs), and the issuance of ADRs and debt securities through Regulation S and Rule 144A.

Our team provides guidance on registration requirements, disclosure and other obligations before the Comisión Nacional de Valores (local securities exchange commission, or SEC) and registered markets.  We provide representation in proceedings initiated against issuers by the CNV such as disciplinary proceedings.
