Particularly focused on project development and permitting, FerradaNehme provides ‘accurate service that is always delivered on time’. The practice is also recommended for the development of compliance programmes for clients’ environmental obligations and it works closely with government and community-relations groups in developing preventive strategies for potential environmental conflicts. The team defended Codelco against an environmental impact claim by a fishermen’s union against eight companies, including Codelco; and also advised on the environmental assessment study of the Quebrada Blanca Phase 1 mining project, which includes an open pit operation. Team head Patricio Leyton has longstanding experience in advising on environmental permits. Valeria Ruz and public law head Luis Cordero are also key contacts.
