  • Description

    We have extensive experience advising on electricity matters and on generation (both renewable and conventional), transmission and distribution activities. We know that these industries are highly specialized; therefore, we collaborate with engineers and economists in order to understand the problems of our clients and propose integral solutions.

    We have actively participated in the privatization and concession of the most important companies in the sector, which has given us special strength in this area. Our specialists have collaborated directly in the design of the legal framework that facilitated the process of privatization of the electricity market, as well as in the preparation of regulations and guidelines that promote a definitive liberalization of the electricity market in Peru to private and foreign investment.

    Our practice covers all the needs of our clients — from project development to accompanying the clients in obtaining all permits, licenses and land rights, and in negotiating and executing the agreements necessary for the project. Additionally, our practice covers regulatory consulting, as well as representing our clients in disputes (arbitration, administrative and judicial processes). As to our transactional experience, we work alongside other practice areas to provide advice on M&A transactions, as well as on financing operations (project finance, debt issuance, etc.).

    We accompany our clients throughout the process, providing not only legal advice but also trust.

      “Because of the excellent results always shown, I always trust in their work. The team in Echecopar worked exactly as a team, always going the same way and keeping the same message. For me as a client, this consistency keeps me confident. Of course, this is the way they differentiate themselves from firms in Lima.”
