Global Corporate and Transactional Projects
With an enormous range of experience in the different areas of corporate law, the SMPS Legal team advises clients on the negotiation and implementation of mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings, joint ventures and shareholders’ agreements, as well as on all types of contracts. We are also specialists in the organization, maintenance, dissolution and liquidation of corporations and partnerships, whether civil, commercial, public, private, profit or non-profit, as well as compliance with specific regulations and the structuring of digital businesses. This enables us to identify and recommend the best, most efficient, tax-efficient structures for the purpose of achieving fiscal efficiency and consolidation and mitigating potential risks.
Our lawyers are experts in negotiating agreements and carrying out specialized audits in order to adequately assess the risks and opportunities inherent in potential transactions.
We are widely acknowledged for our understanding of our clients’ business ventures, our business-oriented negotiating skills, and our proactive approach, all of which enable the said clients to gain the upper hand in all their business deals.
SMPS Legal also provides regulatory-compliance and corporate-governance services, along with advice on day-to-day corporate matters such as the management and custody of corporate books. We also offer consultancy on the development of sophisticated foreign-capital structures aimed at protecting investments and complying with pertinent regulations.
The close liaison between our tax and corporate practices enables us to identify and recommend efficient structures for the clients whom we advise, thus mitigating risks.
Our Corporate department also has offices in Colombia and the United States.
Based on our long-term relationships with our clients, some of our partners serve as members of the boards of directors of several of their businesses.
SMPS Legal’s Global Projects Team also successfully helps clients in various industries and sectors throughout Latin America to implement development and infrastructure projects, including the structuring of Private-Public Partnerships (PPPs).
