Overview

Since Beccar Varela’s inception, the firm's Banking and Financial Institutions Department has been a recognized market leader for national and international clients.

The team has in-depth experience structuring complex financial transactions, both national and cross-border, providing comprehensive regulatory advice covering public and private financing, loan facilities and syndicated loans, project finance, exchange regulations, trade finance, securities, venture capital, portfolio securitization, and trusts, among others.   We collaborate with law firms from around the globe in initial public offerings (IPOs), ADR issuances, and debt securities. Team members also counsel international financial institutions (IFIs) and public entities at the national and provincial levels. Foreseeing potential client requirements for trustee/escrow agent services, Beccar Varela created a registered trust services company.

Over the past years, the firm's team has increasingly assumed the role of international counsel for regional transactions, acting as lead counsel and coordinating with local counsel in other jurisdictions. The superb relations with law firms and clients throughout the region enables Beccar Varela to smoothly support Latin America-wide strategies.
