Vouga has led some of the most relevant transactions in Paraguay over the last year. The majority of the deals are first of its kind. Particularly, we advised local oil company Copetrol in the acquisition of the local assets of Petrobras, the largest known M&A transaction in the country's history so far.
We have one of the strongest teams in the country in the agribusiness sector. Vouga serves some of the largest grain/commodities companies in Paraguay and is very active in all issues relating with agribusiness – the largest sector in the country’s GDP.
Derived in part from its leading M&A practice, we have undertaken some of the most complex antitrust issues. Vouga is currently handling various sensitive proceedings before the national antitrust agency, as part of ground-breaking transactions in the oil & gas, security, transportation and telecommunications sectors, to mention a few.
The Firm is strongly promoting its Compliance area. Besides regularly advising clients in compliance related issues, the Firm conducted a first-of-its-kind survey among large, medium and small local and international companies doing business in Paraguay, focused on understanding the current state of the art/development in respect of compliance programs in Paraguay.
The Firm has been highly successful in being retained by very high profile new clients. We seek to distinguish from competitors by providing responses according to the highest standards (both in terms of quality and agility).
