She has also been involved in concession granting processes, reports on institutional frameworks and environmental regulation, and has participated in due diligence and provided advice on litigious matters related to her practice areas.

Claudia has also worked for more than 10 years in public sector institutions, such as at Chile’s national environmental commission from 2006-10, and at the country’s electric power and oil regulatory commission.

She has a law degree from the Universidad Diego Portales.
