Arias represents Giovanni Bozetto in acquisition of Starchem and Merrill

Arias Law, through its team in Honduras, has represented Giovanni Bozzetto in the acquisition of full control of STARCHEM, and MERRILL, specialty chemical companies manufactured in Honduras, responsible for the development, sales and marketing of specialty chemical solutions in Central America.

This agreement was signed on 3 November and the closing date is still to be defined. Gianni & Origoni also participated in the transaction.

The advice involved an analysis of the local legal landscape on corporate, environmental and tax issues, and assisted in the preparation of the transactional agreements from a local law perspective. In addition, the firm worked closely with environmental consultants to examine the regulatory-environmental aspects of the transaction.

Gianni & Origoni’s team included partner Kathleen Lemmens and attorney Giacomo Marzolini.

Arias’ team was led by Evangelina Lardizábal (pictured), together with Rodolfo Salgado and Valerya Theodoracopoulos.
