Claudio FerreroRodrigo, Elías & Medrano – Abogados

A stellar client list at Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano – Abogados is indicative of its exceptional practice: the firm attracts a raft of the country’s largest mining companies, including Marcobre, Southern Peru Copper Corporation and Anglo American Quellaveco. With tier-one practices across the firm, it provides a ‘magnificent service‘ in respect of the complex legal needs of the mining sector, be it corporate, financing, dispute resolution or environmental, for instance, combined with pre-eminent mining regulatory knowhow. Practice head Luis Carlos Rodrigo Prado is a stalwart of the industry with a global reputation. Despite his managing partner role at the firm, he remains hands-on, recently leading advice to Minera Antamina on its $250m secured loan from Scotiabank. The 19-strong team also includes lead advisers Oscar Benavides, who focuses on exploration, development and exploitation contracts, M&A and the financing of mining projects; administrative mining regulations and environmental expert Francisco Tong; and the more junior -but nevertheless key- partners Francisco Barrios and Claudio Ferrero. At associate level, Mariana Delgado and Diego Pachas -who both have a decade at the firm- provide key support.
