AGM LAW FIRM

When our firm was established in 1984, few envisioned that Corporate Finance
would become so important. Small and medium-sized companies in our
country were just starting out in a number of ways, and ideas like risk capital
or management based on a business plan were still a long way off.
Initially our firm was a traditional legal practice, specializing in mercantile and
company law, employment law, tax and tributary law, and civil law. From the
outset, our mission has always been one of continual development to satisfy
the needs of our clients. Our Corporate Finance division is one of the results
of this mission.
To meet client needs regarding corporate finance transactions, we operate
with a broad structure:

National coverage provided through our numerous offices, part of


a constantly growing network

An international presence achieved through our involvement in


the European network “Lawrope” allowing us (through all the associates and
contacts involved) to be fully operative in five continents

Multidisciplinary teams comprised of economists, fiscal advisors and


lawyers, and our wide-ranging experience and success enable us to advise clients
on optimum solutions in all financial transactions

Everything we do is based on one guiding principle: to provide the best possible


value for the client.

COMPLEMENTARY SERVICES

To be successful, many transactions require complementary services. Given their complexity and the
effect they have on the future of the company, these services usually involve a number of collateral legal
services such as taxation, mercantile contracts, and creation / modification of the company’s legal
structure. Because the AGM Law Firm is multidisciplinary, our professionals deliver the range of
complementary services that our clients require. This ensures better use of information and therefore
optimum results. We deliver complementary services to satisfy requirements for:

Advice on the due diligence process


Concentration of shareholdings
Statutory reform
Revision of contracts
Contracts for top management
Protocol of succession in family-run companies

Our complementary services ensure that every aspect of a transaction is fully covered in a judicial
sense. Two pitfalls (which often lead to failure of transactions) may thus be avoided: legal insecurity
and / or deficient legal instruments.
