Carlos Urrutia Valenzuela
Our multidisciplinary team has deep industry knowledge which enables world-class legal advice on regulatory, environmental, tax, labor, customs, and contractual aspects. We know and understand the mining sector, its legal framework, its participants, its challenges and needs, and the authorities that regulate it, which allows us to accompany our clients in the decision-making process and the execution of projects efficiently and sustainably, becoming an ally of legal services in the development of operations.
We offer legal and strategic accompaniment in mining projects given our extensive proven experience in all aspects of the Mining sector, including the most emblematic and challenging projects in the history of the country. This allows us not only to provide strategic advice but also creative and sophisticated solutions.
We have extensive experience advising mining projects and performing due diligence of mining projects, covering regulatory and compliance issues in order to resolve issues related to the title to concessions, the management and fulfillment of contract obligations, and the procedures to be carried out before government authorities.
We are permanently called upon to advise clients on their day-to-day operations. In addition, if the client so requires, we can act as legal project managers of the client's project, organizing and solving complex problems in short periods of time and cost-efficiently. Additionally, as part of our advice, we offer evaluation to the legal framework, the identification of commercial opportunities, and the acquisition of mining projects, as well as stakes in companies in the sector.
We often work as co-counsel with leading international law firms advising clients in a variety of oil & gas matters, including cross-border acquisitions, project financings, capital markets transactions, as well as in the context of the resolution of disputes before international courts and arbitration panels.
As part of our advice to the mining sector in Colombia, we have developed Mining Tracker, a virtual platform that allows your company to review, in real time, the current status of mining proposals in analysis by the corresponding Mining Authority, as well as the mining concession contracts in operation.
