Mergers & Acquisitions/Corporate

Through over a century, our Mergers & Acquisitions/Corporate Department has guided major investments in Argentina, advising on countless national and cross-border deals.  Current clients range from multinational heavyweights to local entrepreneurs.

We advise both buyers and sellers involved in M&A deals, including commercial and service enterprises, private equity funds and pension administrators, providing guidance on regulatory matters at the federal, provincial and municipal levels.  Our experts have in-depth experience structuring complex financial transactions across all industries.

Various team members are heads or co-heads of related departments such as banking and financial institutions, compliance, company law and private equity, and we draw on our full-service strengths to ensure clients receive integrated M&A advice on potentially relevant issues including competition and antitrust, environment, labor and tax.  Foreseeing potential client requirements for trustee/escrow agent services, Beccar Varela created and owns a trust services company, FyMSA (Fideicomisos & Mandatos S.A.), offering seamless service.

In addition, our team regularly assumes the role of international counsel for regional transactions, acting as lead counsel and coordinating with local counsel in other jurisdictions.  Our superb relations with law firms and clients throughout the region enables us to smoothly support cross-border initiatives and Latin America-wide strategies.

Our professionals are also experts in a range of industries, assisting clients’ analysis of the legal considerations affecting mergers and acquisitions in sectors ranging from infrastructure and natural resources to fintech and e-commerce.
