Jackson Walker acted as U.S. counsel to Grupo Lamosa, S.A.B. de C.V., one of the world’s leading ceramic tile manufacturers, in the purchase of Grupo Roca’s flat ceramic division for $260 million. The transaction includes the acquisition of Tiles Investments and Holdings, SL and its subsidiaries, which have a presence in Spain, Brazil, and the United States.
Based in Monterrey, Mexico, Grupo Lamosa was established in 1890 and has since grown from a small brick factory to a company focused on the manufacture and commercialization of ceramic coatings and adhesives. Through this acquisition, Lamosa strengthens its presence in the Americas and expands its operations to Europe.
Jackson Walker partner Carlos Treviño and associate Michael Flatter led the Jackson Walker team that included Ali Abazari, Richard Garza, Ronald Kerridge, William McDonough, Robert Soza, Peter Wahl, Alyca Riley Garrison, Spence Howden, Michael Roberts, and foreign attorney Mario Alanis. Jackson Walker collaborated closely with a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers from Spain and Brazil on this transaction. The legal team was led by Grupo Lamosa’s General Counsel, Jorge Luis Ramos.
