Rafael ColladoFerradaNehme

FerradaNehme‘s broad practice houses specialists in competition, consumer, regulatory, public, environmental and privacy law compliance, with the five-strong department routinely developing robust compliance programmes for companies. During 2022, the practice was notable active advising on amendments made to Law 20.393 (which established criminal liability for legal entities) that designated four new crimes; such changes required reviews of clients’ prevention processes and the creation of controls to mitigate new risks to which clients could be exposed. The department is led by criminal litigator Rafael Collado, who regularly advises companies on the implementation of compliance models. He is supported at senior associate level by Lucía Álvarez, who assists international companies’ local subsidiaries with adapting their compliance systems to Chilean contexts. Álvarez also conducts  compliance training sessions on compliance issues; advises on internal investigations; and -thanks to her expertise in gender and sexual diversity issues- also facilitates the firm’s ability to advise on the prevention of workplace and sexual harassment.
