Energy in Latin America

Our dedicated team consists of English, Spanish and Portuguese speaking lawyers who can advise you on all aspects of carrying out Energy projects in Latin America and the Caribbean, covering both legal and cultural issues through our in-depth knowledge of the area. We also work closely with highly regarded law firms across the region to ensure you have locally connected advisors on the ground where you need them.

We are committed to the development of Latin America and as such we work in partnership with key development agencies in the region to facilitate investment. We have hosted for three years in a row the Canning House Renewable Energy in Latin America Conference, in conjunction with the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF), in London.
