Since its founding, Tsclex has assisted clients in litigation and arbitration proceedings on key issues in the areas of corporate and commercial law and has also advised companies and private equity funds in various kinds of operations such as mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures as well in drafting commercial agreements.

 

The firm assists clients in issues that may arise between the administrative bodies of the company and its shareholders, conflicts between majority and minority shareholders, as well as in issues of divergences arising in the interpretation of shareholders' agreements or mismanagement cases.
