Jiménez de Aréchaga, Viana & Brause counsels Mondelēz in its acquisition of Cadbury

Mondelēz (the world’s leading snack corporation) acquired renowned food brand Cadbury worldwide. Our firm was in charge of implementing the merger in Uruguay.

By merging, Mondelēz and Cadbury exponentially improved their businesses, as they operate in complementary sub-markets within the food and beverages industry.

In charge of the operation representing our firm were Partner Virginia Brause, of Counsel María Noel Saldías and Junior Associate Jimena González.

Virginia Brause, lead counsel for Mondelēz, said that “although this was an exceedingly complex matter, the fact that we handled it successfully not only fills us with pride but adds to our firm’s longstanding reputation as a valuable and trustworthy ally for our clients in any matter they need our assistance in.”

Mrs Brause added that “specially challenging was the fact that we partook in the Uruguayan section of a global M&A. The result was very successful, taking full advantage of all the tax benefits we had aimed for. Thus, we are very pleased with the outcome of the long hours we put into the matter, and rejoice at once again meeting the demands set by our clients.”
