Announcing Private Equity Study of Colombia, Brazil, Mexico

August 31, 2010

I am pleased to announce the publication this week in the Latin America Law and Business Report of the New York City Bar’s Report “Private Equity Developments In Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.” As LALBR describes our work: 

Private Equity Regulation in Brazil, Colombia and Mexico

A report by the New York City Bar Association Committee on Inter-American Affairs explores some of the key legal factors that may have an impact on the growth of private equity investment in Brazil, Colombia and Mexico. Factors studied include corporate governance, preferred stock provisions and minority shareholders’ rights. Page 9

The site requires a subscription, which can be obtained on a trial basis (and which makes a lot of sense on a long-term basis).

The report’s chapters are:

I. Corporate Governance Regimes

II. Preferred Stock Provisions

III.  Anti-Dilution Rights

IV. Liability of Managers, Directors, and Shareholders; Board Membership

V.  Minority Shareholders’ Rights

VI. Exit Strategies and Implementation Via Drag-Along, Tag-Along, and Registration Rights

VII. Regulatory Issues: Fund Formation, Fund Operation, and Restrictions on Foreign Investment in Funds

VIII. Tax Issues

IX. Dispute Resolution

As one of the report’s co-authors, and now Chair of the Committee on Inter-American Affairs that produced the report, I want to acknowledge the hard work of all our co-authors:
