Overview

Corporate and M&A law is a core business at Mayora and something we have been specializing in for over 50 years. We are consistently sought out for our unparalleled experience in the region and our lawyers’ ability to truly understand the business of our clients.

With an ever more global market, our integrated offices help you reach business opportunities in the region through one single point of contact. Our attorneys have been part of the largest mergers and acquisitions in Central America and helped globally recognized companies open up operations in the region.

We have managed and grown a strong portfolio of day-to-day corporate work and governance, acting as our clients outsourced in-house counsel. With both the resources and responsiveness needed for the most crucial of deals, we enable our clients to focus on their business instead of the legal hurdles that must be cleared to achieve it.
