Leading global law firm Baker McKenzie has advised longstanding client Unilever on its acquisition of Astrix S.A., one of the most important local players in the field of home and personal care products in Bolivia. The Astrix business includes OLA, an iconic home care brand present in most Bolivian households. The Astrix foods portfolio was carved out of the transaction, which closed on 30 August 2019.

The Baker McKenzie team was led from London by M&A senior associate Tom Edwards alongside M&A partner David Scott and associate Anthony Pisarski. They were supported from an IP perspective by partner Michelle Blunt and senior associate Sabrina Tozzi, and on US law aspects by New York Corporate partner Nick Marchica.
