The ‘excellent‘ six-member department at FerradaNehme handles all aspects of environmental law work, focusing particularly on the development and permitting of complex projects. Typical activities include working alongside its clients’ government and community relations teams on environmental conflict avoidance; developing compliance programmes for environmental obligations; and environmental litigation and sanctioning procedures. The team has also developed a robust practice in relation to recently introduced recycling and extended producer-liability legislation. Heading the firm’s environment and natural resources practice, Patricio Leyton specialises in the development of mining and energy projects, particularly matters involving permits and the environmental impact assessment (EIA) system; Valeria Ruz assists with permits and project development; and Carola Salamanca‘s experience includes four years at the Environmental National Commission’s legal department. The strong second line of advisers includes senior associate Claudio Tapia, who rejoined in 2019 from the Superintendence of the Environment (where he prosecuted administrative sanctioning procedures); and active associate María-Pilar Dominguez.
