Our capital markets practice is unrivalled in execution capabilities and in-depth industry knowledge of the law and practice of financial transactions. We typically represent all the major global banks (e.g., Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, JP Morgan), the local securities firms (Banchile, LarrainVial), the global private equity funds (Apollo, BlackRock) and seasoned issuers (Cencosud, Embotelladora Andina, ENAP, Ingevec). The marketplace knows that we excel in this field because of our commitment to challenging structures and deadlines, our highly specialized securities and banking regulatory practice, a fundamental component of a successful and effective capital markets practice, and our ongoing and effective professional relationship with the regulatory agencies and the stock exchanges.  

In terms of our comprehensive experience, we have been involved in the major Chilean capital market transactions executed in recent years (whether as issuer’s counsel, underwriter’s counsel or placement agents’ counsel), including the biggest IPO in the local market as of this date (Cencosud Shopping S.A.,  2019); bond issuances by the Republic of Chile (1999-to date) including the first issuance of Sovereign Green Bonds in Latin America (2019); the second largest IPO in the history of the local market (Plaza S.A., 2018) and the biggest voluntary exchange and early redemption of project bonds conducted in the local market (Ruta del Maipo S.A., 2018).
