Corporate / M&A


At CMS Carey & Allende we understand the challenges that you face in the normal development of your business as well as in complex operations in Chile and the Latin American region; whether you are planning a merger as part of your growth strategy, thinking about diversifying into new sectors or looking for new funding options such as non-bank lending or through equity investment.

Whatever your size, a large publicly listed company or a small privately owned business, we can deliver a tailored, commercial, cost effective solution for you, covering areas such as M&A, private equity, capital markets, outsourcing, group restructuring and privatisations.

Our seal is to incorporate elements that allow operations to be successful in time, enabling the corporate cultures’ integration for all companies involved, with the purpose of maximising synergy.

All of our areas of practice and sectors such as banking, consumer products, energy, infrastructure, real estate and construction, hotels and leisure, technology and media are engaged with each one of the operations in which we participate, which allows us to pinpoint your real commercial issues and risks in a transaction.
