Practice head(s):

Melina Llodrá


‘Llodra Law has been acting as our external counsel for more than three years in ongoing complex corporate, commercial and compliance matters – such as the drafting and negotiation of international energy contracts with extensive anticorruption clauses and contractual tools and the implementation of our compliance program. Melina Llodrá is our contact person, she is very professional and proactive, and has a strongly client-focused approach which is very important to us. We would strongly recommend Llodrá -and in particular Melina- to any company looking for a dedicated, bright and practical lawyer.

I have been working with the Llodrá law firm for the past couple of years. I have the pleasure to work with Melina Llodrá providing advice on Brazilian compliance matters in relation to the design and implementation of the local compliance program of a major European infrastructure company with subsidiaries in Brazil which are operating a large infrastructure project in LATAM. This project involves complex compliance angles, including cross-border matters.  It has been a pleasure working with Melina given that she is very practical and business-oriented, and has a broad view of the whole; suffie to say she has been an important partner for the implementation of cross-border compliance programs, and I would strongly recommend her and her firm.

I have collaborated with Llodrá -in the role of external consultant associated with the firm- for several years in various compliance issues in LATAM. In particular, we have worked on the design and local implementation of the compliance program of an infrastructure company for its branches in LATAM; including Peru, Brazil and Chile. Together with Melina Llodrá and her team, we have carried out the analysis of compliance risks of different local entities, designed various tools and compliance elements, and implemented them, coordinating with the client’s compliance team in Madrid and the different representatives in each country. It is a pleasure to work with Melina and her team, in particular I highlight their honesty, professionalism, commitment and excellent interpersonal treatment.

I would definitely recommend Llodrá and in particular Melina Llodrá for any project related to compliance in the region.’
