DLA Piper PBE adds partner in projects and energy area

DLA Piper Pizarro Botto Escobar announced the incorporation of Jorge Cordova Benavides as a new partner in the area of ​​projects and energy. He was a counselor at Miranda & Amado Abogados.

With his arrival at DLA Piper PBE, there are 11 partners in the firm, for a total of 55 lawyers. The partners Carlos Nuñez and Ricardo Escobar lead the projects, energy and infrastructure area.

On the exit of Cordova de Miranda & Amado Abogados, this firm declared: “Jorge left the firm on good terms. The work that had been done has already been covered by partners of our project team, so -for the moment- we do not see the need to replace it “.

Partner Ricardo Escobar explained to LexLatin the importance of this strategic movement:

We decided to strengthen the area of ​​projects and energy taking into account that the demands of the sector are growing significantly and that the people who work in this sector look for lawyers who can offer more than legal skills; They need lawyers to know the industry extremely well so that they can provide innovative solutions to the challenges they face. ”

For this reason, the firm trusts “that Jorge’s experience in the development and execution of projects in the hydrocarbons, energy and mining industries will be a great addition to our team of experts that focuses on projects and activities related to the energy sector”.
