20–22 March 2019, W Santiago Hotel, 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 and acquisitions activity during the last few years. Compliance and best practice have arrived in all jurisdictions, companies and law firms, and they are now part of a new landscape.
