WE HELP COMPANIES TO FACILITATE PROJECTS AND BUSINESS IN REGULATED SECTORS, BUY AND SELL ASSETS, CAPTURE RESOURCES, AND ESTABLISH PARTNERSHIPS AND STRATEGIC CONTRACTS WITH THE GOVERNMENT. TO THIS END, WE SEEK INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS, DIFFERENTIATED AND ADAPTED TO EACH SPECIFIC CASE.

We support investors interested in participating in bids and conducting regulated activities through PPPs (public-private partnerships), grants, permits, or authorizations. Combining our solid legal base with deep knowledge and experience in each of the regulated infrastructure and energy sectors developed over the past decades, we help our clients assess risks and structure and model complex projects, seeking maximum return for their investments.

We develop solutions for fundraising through project finance, derivatives, investment funds, securitizations, securities issuances, and other instruments.

We operate in the structuring of guarantees and counterguarantees for the granting of financing by export credit agencies, development banks, and local or foreign financial institutions. Our multidisciplinary vision helps to clarify all key issues for the feasibility of projects, whether regulatory, contractual, corporate, tax, financial, or environmental.

We provide legal assistance in the relationship with agencies and regulatory bodies and represent our clients before the courts of auditors, the judiciary, and arbitral tribunals.

EXPERTISE IN COMPLEX CONTRACTS IN REGULATED SECTORS

We have solid experience in the drafting of contracts demanded by infrastructure and energy projects, either with the public sector or between private parties, such as EPC contracts, EPCMs, alliances, Operation and Maintenance (O&M) contracts, purchase and sale of energy (PPAs), and instruments related to concessions and PPPs.
