Mergers and Acquisitions in Latin America: Challenges and Best Practices in the Era of Compliance

20–22 March 2019, Santiago, Chile


A conference co-presented by the IBA Latin American Regional Forum and the IBA Corporate and M&A Law Committee

Latin America has experienced important changes and new challenges to mergers andacquisitions (M&A) activity during the last few years. Compliance and best practices have arrived in all jurisdictions, companies and law firms, and they are now part of a new landscape. Uncertainties are being left behind, but there is a lot to do to continue the growth in developing Latin American economies, with a new political spectrum in most of the countries.
