Much Shelist recently served as lead counsel for Ag-Mining Investments, AB in its acquisition of all of the outstanding capital stock of Empresa Minera Manquiri, S.A.
Empresa, which operates the San Bartolomé mine and processing facility near Potosì, Bolivia, was a wholly owned subsidiary of Coeur Mining, Inc. (NYSE: CDE), a large, U.S.-based precious metals producer.
International in scope, the transaction involved an investor group in Mexico that formed a tax-beneficial Swedish entity to purchase a Bolivian corporation from a U.S. owner. The Much Shelist deal team was led by David Pilotto, a principal in the firm's Corporate & Finance group who regularly works with companies on complex M&A transactions. Christopher Walker assisted on the transaction.
Ag-Mining was referred to Much Shelist by Monterrey, Mexico-based D & A Morales y Asociados, which served as local counsel to the buyer. Both Much Shelist and D & A Morales are members of Ally Law, a global network of more than 60 independent law firms with 2,400 lawyers practicing in over 100 business centers worldwide.
