Expertise

Corporate Finance

Our Corporate Finance practice is dedicated to providing expert advice on highly complex and innovative corporate finance transactions within the Colombian legal market. Thanks to our specialized legal advisory, we have been trusted by corporate debtors from different industries and sectors, as well as by banks, financial institutions, Fintech companies, private equity funds, and multilateral entities for the structuring, negotiation and closing of bilateral and syndicated loan facilities.  

We also advice our clients in the structuring and negotiation of any other contract or ancillary contract required as part of the financing structuring, such as security packages, promissory notes, trust agreements, parent company guarantees, and equity contribution agreements, among others.  

We have extensive experience in the structuring of asset-backed and receivable financing transactions over several types of accounts receivables that arise from, among others, collateralized loan obligations, consumer loans, and credit card loans, among others. We also provide our advice in connection to acquisition finance, leveraged-buyout transactions, and cash-flow lending transactions.   

We have also specialized in corporate debt restructuring and refinancing, offering tailor-made advise to our clients facing financial challenges by analyzing their existing debt and identify the most viable options to achieve financial stability. We accompany them in negotiating with creditors, structuring new security packages and facilitating conversions into new debt instruments.  

Our practice covers local law-governed financings and cross-border deals governed by foreign laws, particularly New York, where we act as local counsel to our clients.
