Leonardo Rodríguez - Marval, O'Farrell & Mairal

Within: Mining

‘Excellent in all respects’, Marval, O'Farrell & Mairal’s mining practice garners strong praise for its ‘unrivalled breadth of expertise across many practice areas’ and its ‘excellent client service’. The group’s ‘strong business mindset’ also finds favour, with key partner Leonardo Rodríguez highlighted as a ‘multifaceted lawyer who displays strong commitment to the client’s corporate aims’. Rodríguez recently advised Minera Hochschild Argentina on several issues, including exploration operations, environmental matters and the acquisition and maintenance of mining rights. Department head Luis Lucero is a ‘stand-out expert in his field’ and leads the firm’s representation of Oroplata, a wholly owned subsidiary of Goldcorp, on day-to-day matters relating to its Cerro Negro mine – a multibillion-dollar gold and silver operation. On the litigation front, Lucero represented Pachón (a wholly owned subsidiary of Glencore) in its $300m dispute with Minera Los Pelambres concerning a waste dump built by Minera Los Pelambres on Glencore’s property in Argentina. Senior associate Andrés Villarreal is also a key contact.
