Aninat Schwencke & Cia is best known for having a structured an skilful team who accepted the challenge to form a modern, deeply committed and highly experienced Energy and Natural Resources practice area. In this regard, it is best known for being able to legally advise clients and their project developments in a fast and effective manner in complex transactions and agreements due to its in-depth, current knowledge and vast experience.

The members of our Energy and Natural Resources practice area have not only participated but have structured and legally engineered sophisticated agreements, which have allowed projects to develop and obtain finance with commercial mechanisms being implemented for the first time in the country.

Our practice area is also known for having sharp lawyers, which due to their knowledge in regulatory issues as well as practical experience in developments and finance allow our clients a multiplicity of alternatives. Basically our lawyers in this practice area are best known for thinking out-of-the-box, managing the legal, commercial, technical and financial aspects of negotiations for energy projects, specially renewable energy, which some have considered as the beginning of a whole new game. As a result of the above, our team members are considered as inside players of the energy / project development industry, with solid contacts and know-how as regards to both, private  (banks, financing, transactions, contracts) and public sector (concessions, environmental permits and regional public services).

Clients have mentioned that Head Department, partner Nicolás Atkinson analyses risks very well and manages matters quickly and assertively agreeing that he has the most in-depth knowledge of power purchase agreements of anyone in the country.
