Department profile submitted by Cervantes Sainz, S.C.
Cervantes Sainz successfully combines a very strong litigation practice area with a corporate practice area (including M&A, finance, banking, real estate and regulatory matters). Corporate lawyers are regularly exposed to the process of designing, planning and coordinating several corporate pre-litigation and litigation strategies regarding commercial disputes, shareholders’ conflicts, minority rights and corporate governance matters, and are frequently consulted by our litigation lawyers on practical corporate matters. Likewise, our litigation lawyers assist the corporate team in drafting of corporate and M&A related documentation.
Thus, members of the Corporate and M&A team have developed an acute sensibility to contingent problems that may arise from corporate and M&A transactions, including local and cross-border legal structures, providing value-added sources to our clients.
Our transactional lawyers have extensive experience with complex mergers, acquisitions, dispositions, auctions, financings, private and public placements, spin-offs, joint ventures, restructurings and similar transactions for clients in a broad range of industries, and have been involved in all aspects of leveraged buyouts, managed buyouts and distressed sales.
