The next line of active practitioners features Rafael Rencoret (promoted to partner in January 2023), who maintains an active mining practice; while at associate level, Verónica Roa routinely drafts complex mining agreements and Javiera Vicuña advises on mining, water, energy, and corporate law matters.
