Óptima Financial Services relied on Arias for legal assistance in the acquisition of operations of Finca El Salvador. Both companies are dedicated to providing micro-credit to micro, small and medium enterprises. With the consolidation of both companies, Óptima will expand its services to 19 branches with coverage throughout the country, 300 employees and nearly 14,000 customers.
Zygmunt Brett, Partner at Arias in El Salvador, led the transaction with the support of associates Rolando Alvarenga and Antonella Imbers. The firm provided counsel on all legal aspects of the transaction until its closure last June 28th, 2016.
