Our work is oriented to rendering advise to national and foreign investors in legal and regulatory aspects related to the entire range of activities that are present in the sector, including counseling in the privatization and / or bidding processes before the Peruvian State, including the signing of contracts for transfer, concession, investment, legal stability and tax stability, among others; compliance and accreditation of obligations relating to investment, occupational health, safety and environment, and community relations; negotiation, clearance and access to surface rights; advice for the approval of environmental permits; audits; and advice on supervision and tax procedures.

Our consultancy has a large component of M & A and financing services. The work with our clients includes the structuring of transactions at local and transnational level, whether they are sales and acquisition projects, related assets or companies; the granting of guarantees; and in general, consultancy in all types of contracting associated to the development of activities of the sector (streaming agreements, and minerals sale contracts, among others) and the implementation and start up of projects, such as EPCs and O&M.

Due to our widely recognized experience in the sector, we have not only advised mining investors, but have also been consultants in the implementation of investment promotion regulation in the sector.
