María Fernanda Brahm – Arteaga Gorziglia & Cia Abogados

The ‘very attentive‘ team at Arteaga Gorziglia & Cia Abogados is well known for its expertise in greenfield energy project developments. The 11-strong energy practice routinely negotiates power plant-related engineering, procurement, and construction agreements, as well as operation and maintenance contracts for solar and wind power plants. The firm is additionally active in regulatory and administrative proceedings before Chile’s energy authorities, and fields a go-to team for advice on electricity law regulations. The practice is jointly led by commercial, corporate and business law expert Ignacio Arteaga, who (in addition to arbitration) focuses on energy projects and related contractual matters, energy M&A, and project development and finance; and renewable energy project development and finance specialist Luciano Cruz. The second line of key advisers includes energy litigator María Fernanda Brahm; and recently-promoted director Cristián Carpentier, who advises on M&A and project finance involving renewable power plants and high-voltage transmission lines. In November 2022, former director and regulatory and environmental practice head Pedro Lagos C departed the firm for an in-house role at ACCIONA Energía.
