Marité Aragaki has broad experience negotiating agreements and dealing with regulatory aspects for the extractive industries, advising foreign and national clients in the planning, development and implementation of investment projects in the energy, mining and gas sectors. She has worked with the mining CMS Grau practice area since 2003 and was named partner in 2014.

Marité has experience in Corporate and M&A transactions, having been involved in many of the most relevant M&A transactions in the Peruvian mining sector, as well as in the financing of projects. Her area of expertise also includes acquisitions and construction for the extractive industries, as well as commercial contracts with a special focus on the mining, electricity and gas sectors (material contracts including energy supply, EPC, insurance, among others).

From her recent work we can highlight the streaming transactions closed by Silver Wheaton and Glencore, as well as the negotiation of the EPC for the south Peruvian pipeline (gasoducto del sur).
