Hernando Becerra de Cima
Partnersee full profile →
Our firm is renowned for having one of the most visible and prominent private equity practices in Mexico. Our team of lawyers in this area has broad knowledge in the design of state-of-the-art approaches for structuring corporate purchases, strategic acquisitions or investments in privately and publicly held companies.
We have advised industry clients in hostile offers (both local and with cross-border implications), regulated tender offers to privatize companies, as well as divestments and purchases of minority holdings. Our capability to work on several transactions of distinct natures, simultaneously and soundly, are largely based in the experience and number of lawyers that comprise our firm. We put together robust and efficient due diligence teams for analysis of target companies, by bringing team members from other practice groups such as real estate, environmental law, banking and securities, labor laws, and intellectual property law, as may be convenient or necessary.
Of note are our abilities and skills in advising clients on the formation and day-to-day activities of private equity funds and the companies organized to sponsor them, including advise to the individuals that actively manage them. We have organized numerous regulated and non-regulated Mexican and foreign private equity funds and frequently act as counsel for the Mexican government’s funds of funds in the areas of infrastructure, energy, and clean-air projects through long-term, mezzanine and venture capital structures.
