Chile’s Lawgic appoints new energy head
Lawgic has appointed Rosario Martínez Larraín as the new head of its energy practice, bringing the number of lawyers at the firm to 10 just one year after its foundation.
Rosario, who joins the firm as an associate from Carey, is a law graduate from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and holds an LLM from the Universidad de Navarra in Spain.
She is a member of the exclusive Women in Energy program, formed by the World Energy Council in Chile, and brings her expertise to lead the firm’s energy practice.
The firm focuses on environmental and natural resources laws and was launched in 2020 by former Carey lawyers, Felipe Meneses, Agustín Walker and Sebastián Del Campo.
For Rosario, working in a specialized boutique law firm such as Lawgic means "being part of a modern model of legal advice that, with a more flexible and smaller structure, allows a greater involvement with the client's business and their needs, delivering high quality and tailor-made services".
Rosario is a recognized specialist in the energy sector and has more than a decade’s experience in the development of energy projects of all kinds, including transmission and interconnection issues, electricity supply contracts and regulatory issues relating to the electricity industry. In addition, he has experience in due diligence, financing, civil and corporate matters.
"We believe that professional skills are very important but that alone are insufficient,” the firm said in a statement. “The quality of work goes hand in hand with a happy and committed team, and Rosario fits perfectly with the spirit we want to maintain within the office."
