Shearman And Sterling

Alexandro M. Padrés is the Head of the Latin America Practice Group and a partner in the Project Development & Finance practice.

He focuses on infrastructure projects as they relate to the electricity (both conventional and clean/renewable), oil and gas telecommunications and mining sectors, with a particular emphasis on Mexico and Latin America. Most recently, Alexandro’s practice has consisted of portfolio financings in several jurisdictions in Latin America (in various modalities and levels of complexity), including advising sponsors and lenders on the financing of renewables projects being developed under the auspices of power purchase agreements under the new legislative framework in Mexico arising from the constitutional energy reform of 2013, as well as the development and financing of gas transportation infrastructure and legacy independent power producer projects in Mexico issued by the Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE).  Alexandro also represents sponsors and lenders throughout Latin America, including more recently on the financing of contracted transmission line projects and desalination projects in Chile.

Alexandro advises various sponsors, such as Engie, AES Corporation and numerous multilateral agencies, regional and local development banks and export credit agencies in all aspects of project and infrastructure finance.
