International and Cross Border Transactions Practice Group Partner Emma Solaun was quoted in Latin Lawyer Online on January 16, 2009 in a piece titled, "Scandinavian Tobacco takes factories in Central America." This article discusses Holland & Knight's representation of cigar factory families whose companies have been acquired by subsidiaries of the larger, Scandinavian Tobacco Group.
Solaun describes the challenges that she and her team successfully conquered: "This transaction was particularly challenging given the short timeframe and multiple jurisdictions involved, which included Latin America, the United States and Europe." She added in that timing and procedures that coincided with the holidays made the issues even more taxing to resolve.
Holland & Knight Team members Jeffrey Rubinger, Violeta Longino, and Liliana Vidal were also mentioned in this article.
