We also have wide experience representing claims of persons affected by illegal crowdfunding, and in liquidation processes carried out as an intervention measure before the Superintendence of Companies.

We work together with our clients proposing alternatives to overcome crises, promoting private negotiation and activating legal mechanisms that allow those affected to participate in the process, structuring complex mechanisms and security packages, as well as of schemes of universal business transfers, mergers and acquisitions.
