Carey, Chile’s largest firm, sits at the top of both of the country’s M&A league tables, with nine reported transactions and a deal value of US$5.13 billion.


Urenda, Rencoret, Orrego y Dorr Abogados and Philippi, Yrarrázaval, Pulido & Brunner take second and third spot in the value tables. In the volume tables, Carey is followed by Cariola, Díez, Pérez-Cotapos & Cía Ltda (six) and Philippi (five).

Two of the region’s most closely watched transactions have played out in Chile over the last three years – the Latam airline merger and the Anglo American-Codelco deal. Of those, only the latter leg of the Codelco-Mitsui deal was announced in our 2012 window, but they illustrate the level of sophistication in the country’s transactional community today.
