Chile

Banking and finance

Within: Banking and finance

Carey’s ‘highly professional and knowledgeable practice is outstanding’. It has longstanding experience in advising Chilean and foreign lenders, investors and borrowers on secured and unsecured syndicated and bilateral loan facilities; debt restructurings; public and private offerings and placements; and equity and debt securities. The practice is also highly regarded for securitisations; project financings; structured products; and derivative transactions. Felipe Moro led advice to SunPower, as sponsor and parent company of Total SunPower El PelĂ­cano, on the project financing of the construction, commission, operation and maintenance of a 100MW photovoltaic plant and its related transmission lines and civil engineering works; and Diego Peralta, who is ‘a highly experienced lawyer in Chile for financial matters’, acted for International Finance Corporation (IFC) on the execution of a $30m loan agreement and the issuing of promissory notes under Chilean Law. Other highlights saw two independent teams act for both the lender and borrower on a $100m credit agreement granted by Rabobank Chile, The Bank of Nova Scotia, Banco de CrĂ©dito del PerĂș and Export Development Canada. Francisco Ugarte is also recommended.
