Within: Environment

Carey’s full-service environmental, indigenous and regulatory practice is highly rated for large, complex matters in areas such as mining, non-conventional renewable energy and aquaculture; and the environmental litigation team regularly works alongside the firm’s disputes resolution group on administrative disputes. Highlights included advising Hidronor, which operates in the industrial waste sector, on strategic environmental analysis and associated advice concerning the development of a new phase of the largest security landfill for industrial waste in southern Chile. In contentious matters, the team defended concrete producer Melón against a claim for alleged environmental contamination damage filed by fishing organisations. Alberto Cardemil is highly rated; Rafael Vergara has vast experience in regulatory and environmental evaluation procedures, due diligence and audits; and counsel Felipe Meneses focuses on environmental and indigenous law, territorial planning and regulatory matters, including complex administrative disputes and litigation.
