Sergio Galvis Featured in El FinancieroMay 15, 2015
On May 15, El Financiero, one of Mexico's leading business and financial newspapers published an interview with Mr. Galvis as part of their Q&A series. El Financiero is affiliated with Bloomberg News. Mr. Galvis discussed the diversity of conditions across Latin American markets and the increasing global nature of the M&A market, insisting on the necessity for legal and financial advisers to have a strong understanding of local issues and deal technology in order to develop a structure that works locally and internationally. Mr. Galvis noted that the Latin American countries that have established transparent and balanced regulatory environments aimed at providing investor protections while simultaneously ensuring the long-term growth and prosperity of their inhabitants attract the most foreign investment activity. In terms of what led to successful cross-border M&A legal work, Mr. Galvis commented that, in light of the increasingly global nature of the M&A market, successful practitioners are those who are familiar with the issues in multiple jurisdictions and are able to leverage their experience with that of local counsel.
El Financiero together with Bloomberg, has launched a Spanish-language business news service, which includes a television network that now serves as Mexico and Central America's only Spanish-language business news channel.
