Marcelo E. Bombau

Marcelo Bombau is one of the partners in the Mergers and Acquisitions and Telecommunications and Media Law departments and heads the Entertainment Law department.

He specializes in the structuring and negotiation of corporate sales transactions and continuing advice to boards of directors (of which in many cases he is a member) and in house legal departments of firms operating in a wide range of fields. The majority of his clients belong to international groups, with emphasis on companies dedicated to mass consumer products and audiovisual media and entertainment.

His expertise and dedication to issues entrusted to him have earned him the highest respect from clients and colleagues, as well as uninterrupted recognition from specialized publications such as Latin Lawyer and Chambers Latin America, among others.

As a result of a combination of the above, he was elected Chair of the ABA International Law Section for 2014–2015, an historical appointment as the first non-US qualified lawyer to occupy a similar position in more than 135 years of the American Bar Association.
