Corporate / M&A

At CMS Carey & Allende we understand the challenges 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 of diversifying into new sectors or looking for new funding options, such as non-bank lending or through equity investments.

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

Our hallmark is to incorporate elements that allow operations to be successful over time, enabling the integration of corporate cultures for all the companies involved, in order to maximise synergy.

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