"They answer promptly and work with flexibility and a commercial spirit in order to achieve objectives. They have a profound knowledge of the regional legal market and the regulatory aspects of projects." – Chambers and Partners
Although all the countries of Central America have surpassed the 80 percent electrification mark, in an age when every modern convenience is electrically powered millions of people in the region are without access to electricity. Recent tendencies in the power sector have demonstrated the capacity of Central American countries to develop national and regional policy responses and encourage private and public investment to address urgent energy sector issues. Consequently, common policies, mutual financial concerns, and joint development projects have transformed the region into an investment destination with cross frontier interactions. For participants in power grid planning and development, we consider it essential to employ a centrally-directed legal team of highly specialized energy advisors who can manage projects with a broad view of compliance issues, international mutual interests, and the vast opportunities that abound in the various jurisdictions.
