Mergers & Acquisitions, Joint Ventures

Von Wobeser y Sierra, S.C. counts with a solid M&A, joint ventures practice. M&A is a very highly specialized area of our corporate practice, which warrants special mention. The Firm has a team of attorneys with in-depth knowledge and expertise in handling mergers and acquisitions, both private and public. This highly qualified department provides a full range of services to clients desiring to merge with or to acquire other companies in Mexico or abroad. The Firm regularly represents and advises local and global firms in their most important and strategic M&A transactions, including the largest, most complex and strategically transcendental transactions ever carried out in Mexico. Our team represents and advises both purchasers and sellers of almost any type of domestic or international company, often in cross-border transactions. In this respect, we provide counsel on mergers, share and asset based acquisitions, leveraged acquisitions and buy-outs, restructuring transactions, joint ventures, private equity, and spin-offs, to name just a few, of all scales and levels of complexity.

Because of the international emphasis of our practice, we understand our foreign clients' needs in understanding the legal complexities of doing transactions in Mexico, often as part of a multijurisdictional transaction. As part of our corporate practice, we have extensive experience in establishing joint-venture companies in Mexico, specially representing foreign investors. Our firm has represented clients in the drafting and negotiation of joint venture agreements for decades, has supervised their implementation in joint venture companies, and members of our firm have often acted as directors in joint-venture companies representing the interests of our clients. At the same time, and due to the fact that our Firm also has a significant litigation and ADR practice, our Firm has advised and represented clients who have needed to resort to litigation or arbitration in order to defend their rights in disputes arising from M&A transactions and joint-ventures. We are one of a handful of Mexican firms whose corporate and litigation and dispute resolution practices are equally recognized and have thorough experience. Thus, we are uniquely positioned to provide real-life experience advice aimed at identifying and minimizing risks since the inception of the deals we participate in.
