This content is provided by Morales & Besa.


Our Corporate and M&A practice has formed itself for almost 28 years. In this time, it has gained knowledge and experience throughout advisories to many companies, of a wide range of areas, such as infrastructure, energy, technology, mining, construction, among many others. Specially in M&A, we have advised different international bidders, private equity firms and local and international sellers in the most challenging acquisition processes in Chile.

We are positioned as market leaders in privatization, and we have advised in virtually all key divestments and sales of state-owned enterprises, and bidding processes for the award of concessions to operate state-controlled activities and resources. 

Recent relevant experience: 

  • Buy-side: Advice to Partners Group in the acquisition of 50% of EnfraGen LLC; Accel-KKR in the acquisition of Lemontech S.A.; advice to Merck, Sharp and Dohme Corporation in the acquisition of Vaki Aquaculture; EIG Group on the acquisition of Likana Solar SpA; Teras Capital Group, in the acquisition of a stake con Pacífico Cable SpA; DIF Capital Partners in the acquisition of non-controlling stakes in some toll road concessionaires.; and Mitsubishi Materials Corporation in the acquisition of a 30% interest in the Mantoverde copper mine, among others. 
  • Sell-side: Advised FRS Capital Corp. in the investment by Blackstone Infrastructure Partners in Carrix; Exceda Americas Inc. in the selling of its full portfolio to Akamai Technologies Inc.
