Infrastructure & Projects

Chile

As a sponsor, lender or public sector organisation, you require legal advisors who can help you successfully handle complex infrastructure and project financing transactions.

Whether you are involved in public works programmes or private sector financing, you will get the legal advise you need from us in the participation of tenders, bestowals and awards, execution, and development of concession projects for energy, transportation, hospitals, penitentiary, and port areas.

We count on a team of lawyers with experience and knowledge in matters related to concessions, as well as tax, real estate, and development law, environmental law, and other legal specialties required for the tasks at hand.

Our lawyers have helped shape transactions across these sectors, ensuring quick deal completions on terms that optimise your returns. And if you are facing a potential dispute, we have the experts to support you through dispute resolution procedures or litigation action. Whatever your situation, we have the track record and the people to help.
