Chilean law firm Morales & Besa has named Paloma Infante director of its regulatory and environmental law practice
With over 15 years' experience in environmental law, Infante advises clients on the environmental evaluation processes of projects, as well as litigation, negotiations with communities in land disputes, and on regulatory frameworks in the fishing and aquaculture industries.
She is a law graduate from the Universidad de Chile and holds an LLM in environmental law from New York University, and focused her practice on environmental, mining, water and energy regulations.
She is a member of the environmental and sustainability committee of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, and a professor of environmental law at the Universidad del Desarrollo.
Prior to joining the firm in 2018, she worked for the country's environmental regulatory body, the Superintendencia del Medio Ambiente, where she worked on the implementation of the country's environmental regulatory framework.
“Paloma’s appointment responds to her outstanding professional career that, internally, has resulted in the restructuring and consolidation of our environmental and regulatory practice group, which has a powerful feminine leadership, and externally, in the expansion of our spectrum of clients and industries," Guillermo Morales, founding partner at Morales & Besa, said.
