Real Estate and Public Concessions

Led by Carolina Squella, this area of expertise includes the design and legal execution of real estates projects, the acquisition and transfer of agricultural, forestry and urban assets, and the advice on public tender processes for infrastructure and services public concessions.

Real estate developments

CorreaGubbins. leads a real estate project of over 350 hectares in Santiago, which involves an investment of approximately USD 460 million, with a 20 years estimated execution timeline. We have also been responsible for the acquisition of lands for the construction of two university campuses (Santiago: 93 hectares, and Viña del Mar: 20 hectares), whose legal structure required sophisticated financial contracts.

Public tender processes

We are expert legal advisors in State biddings and public concessions, either for the provision of services or for the development of infrastructure. For example, representing Empresa Portuaria San Antonio, which manages the largest port in Chile, we obtained the regulatory approvals required by the Antitrust Tribunal and other relevant agencies (2009). Furthermore, we drafted the bidding terms and concession contracts for two docking/mooring sides involving a USD 450 million investment.
