Overview

Our Power team serves clients in all stages of the electricity chain, including generation, transmission, distribution and large consumers. We work with national and international clients active in the thermal, hydro, wind, solar, biogas and geothermal sectors, among others.

We have experience in major government privatizations, international bids and concession contract renegotiations, and assist both developers and owners on the drafting and negotiation of EPC agreements, including risk assessment and structuring.

The current emphasis on developing Argentina’s renewable energy sector created an impetus for exponential growth in power investments. Our firm advises on public bid processes and financing mechanisms, with various clients winning tenders. As an active member of the Argentine Renewable Chamber (Cámara Argentina de Energías Renovables or “CADER”), we participated in the drafting of the amendment to the Argentine Renewable Energy regime, Law 27,191.

We advise on regulatory issues at the national and provincial level, as well as for cross-border deals, and assist global clients with market entry strategies, either through acquisitions or the direct establishment of a local subsidiary, including corporate registrations. We have extensive experience in structuring legal solutions for power sector finance, thanks to our strong M&A, banking and finance, private equity and tax teams.
