Lina and Juan Pablo co-authored a chapter entitled “Privatisations and M&A Transactions with Government Entities”, which intends to explore the main challenges faced when undertaking M&A transactions involving the government or government-owned entities, with a particular emphasis on privatisations in Colombia.

In the chapter “Preliminary Legal Documents in M&A Transactions”, Pablo and Patricio analyse the common use of preliminary legal documents in M&A transactions in Latin America and the challenges that the unregulated nature of this legal documents present.
