We have advised the most important companies of the sector, which has given us extensive knowhow not only of the industry's regulatory framework but also of the business per se, which facilitates the understanding of our clients’ needs and the sector problematic itself.
Moreover, our experience has been enriched by our participation in government contracts and in drafting suggestions and legislative amendments, which have boosted the participation of foreign investment in the country due to appropriate tax treatment as well as legal stability to important investments required by the hydrocarbon business, either on exploration or production, as well as on the midstream and downstream businesses.
It is worth mentioning that several lawyers have actively participated in the drafting of legal norms regulating this sector as well as different other practice areas.
As for natural gas, this market has experienced remarkable development since the commercial exploitation of the Camisea Project — the most important of the country — where our Firm gives legal advice to the principal agents (private and public) within the value chain.
