Providing a comprehensive service across the finance spectrum, DLA Piper Martinez Beltrán impresses sources with a ‘sound and sensible‘ interdisciplinary team led by four partners. The 12-strong practice is especially active in acquisition and project finance, particularly for road and thermo-generated power projects. Felipe Quintero is an experienced contracts and structured finance expert; and November-2019 hire, Sebastián Lora, strengthens the practice on the project finance side. Formerly a senior associate at Posse Herrera Ruiz, Lora has handled diverse financing operations, including syndicated and corporate financings. Additional key figures include managing partner Camilo Martínez, whose recent highlights include advising Coviandina on a bridge-loan agreement for its Chirajará-Fundadores project; and Juan Manuel de la Rosa, whose practice centres on advising private equity funds and strategic blue-chip investors. Senior associate Sebastian Celis is also noted.
