Mergers & Acquisitions

The members of our M&A department have the insight and experience to advise corporate and private equity investors through each stage of the merger and acquisition process. We are able to recommend tailor-made legal strategies and solutions to help our clients achieve their objectives, considering the characteristics of the Panamanian market and economy.

In addition to the execution of the legal due diligence process, as well as the negotiation, drafting, and review of the different contracts and agreements to achieve the mergers or acquisitions, we advise our clients concerning other legal matters that may be relevant in these types of transactions, including advice on regulatory matters, construction, and lease agreements, as well as complex real estate transactions.

Our experienced M&A department is continuously involved in transactions of all sorts, including, without limitation, those based on mergers, asset purchase agreements (real estate as well as chattel/equipment/personal property, etc.), share purchase agreements, and joint ventures. We can provide all the necessary legal assistance from the start (NDAs, MOUs, due diligence, etc.) until the final closing. Our M&A department works together with other departments of our law firm, such as Intellectual Property, Corporate, Tax, Labor, Litigation, and Real Estate departments, to make sure the client receives thorough and accurate advice during the whole process of the merger or acquisition. In addition, all the members of our M&A team are used to working with colleagues abroad and coordinating transactions that may involve different jurisdictions when required by our clients.

Most of our clients for M&A transactions are multinational companies. Thus, our M&A team is accustomed to dealing with cross-border transactions and fulfilling the needs of our international clientele.
