At Baker & McKenzie, we understand that not all transactions are the same. The issues underlying mergers, acquisitions and other agreements vary by industry and company. Whether you’re a buyer or a seller, we focus on helping you complete transactions efficiently and effectively and increasing the value of your business.
For more than 50 years, we have helped both local and international companies enter into agreements and succeed in Venezuela. Our lawyers can guide foreign companies doing business in Venezuela for the first time. We can assist you through the country’s notoriously complex tax, labor and environmental regulations. We can help you succeed in industries with special restrictions for foreign investors, such as media, transportation and health. Here are ways we help:
Post-transaction support – We support clients in creating value from acquisitions by planning for tax efficient post-acquisition integration or post-divestiture reorganization as part of the deal process, helping realign operations to meet new business needs
Integration planning – Our integration planning also seeks to leverage the commercial synergies of the deal by focusing on achieving the most favorable finance, employee benefits and trading structures
Mitigation of risks – We protect the value in the deal by using well-established processes to identify, analyze and plan for the mitigation of the risks arising in corporate transactions
Efficient and reliable deal execution – We achieve this by project managing our deals and exploiting our long established national and cross-border transaction management procedures
Neutralizing cross-border risk – There are no surprises on our cross-border deals. Our lawyers anticipate issues likely to be faced not only in their own country but also in the other countries involved
Capturing investment opportunity – We understand the diverse challenges presented by private equity, and have a wealth of experience in structuring and executing institutional and management-led buyouts, public-to-privates, follow-on acquisitions, IPOs and trade sales
