Chile

Technological convergence coupled with the rapid spread of new technologies has opened up a wealth of opportunities in your industry and you must move swiftly to capitalise on them. To stay ahead of the competition, you need to spot and pre-empt legal difficulties before they arise. Innovation is key, but you need to overcome significant regulatory and commercial hurdles.

We are day-to-day advisers for various areas within the industry, including the Latin American IT industry leader. We have experience in hardware and software contract negotiations, both foreign and national, as well as in the negotiation and legal structuring of complex IT service solutions integration.

The telecom market is currently in full transformation in Chile.The modernisation of the normative framework will continue until it has decreased entry barriers for new players, simplifying models for the granting of licences, and modifying them for converging services. We have actively participated in the elaboration and discussion of laws and regulations that govern this industry in Chile.

We can advise you on matters related to M&A, as well as on financing alternatives by way of public offer of shares and bonds in the capital markets.
