MIAMI – Sidley is pleased to welcome Juan Delgado as a Global M&A and Private Equity partner in Miami. Prior to joining Sidley, Mr. Delgado, a Miami native, was a corporate partner at Morrison & Foerster LLP. Managing Associate Axel Miranda will also be joining from Morrison & Foerster LLP in the Global M&A and Private Equity Practice.
Mr. Delgado advises domestic and international corporate clients on a wide range of mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, and financing transactions. He also regularly represents private equity sponsors in venture and growth equity investments. Much of his practice is in Latin America and cross-border focused.
“The expansion of our global M&A and private equity practice will be boosted by Juan’s experience handling deals and working with clients in Latin America,” said Brian Fahrney, global co-leader of the firm’s global M&A and Private Equity practice and a member of Sidley’s Management and Executive Committees. “Juan is another example of capitalizing on our new presence in Miami to help identify and attract world-class talent to the firm.”
“We’re excited to have Juan join us in Miami,” said Yvette Ostolaza, Sidley’s Management Committee chair. “His fluency in Spanish, along with his experience with cross-border deals will be a great addition to our growing team in South Florida. Juan and Axel have worked together successfully on major matters, which will help facilitate a seamless transition of Juan’s practice to our platform.”
