He is joined by Sebastián Hassi Troxler, who has expertise in public procurement, concessions, administrative law penalties and consumer protection. Francisco Yrarrázaval, also part of the labor law practice, is highly experienced in regulated industries, particularly in the energy industry.
“We are very pleased with the incorporation of Claudio and Sebastián, who will strengthen the public law practice, a priority area in Chile and in LatAm due to the constant infrastructure development”, said Javier Ybañez, the partner in charge of Garrigues’ LatAm practice.
