L&W acts in GIP’s acquisition of Atlas Renewable Energy

Latham & Watkins has assisted Global Infrastructure Management, a subsidiary of Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), in the acquisition of Atlas Renewable Energy from Actis, a global sustainable infrastructure investor.

This transaction is primarily aimed at expanding the company’s presence in Latin America, as Atlas is one of the largest independent renewable energy developers in the region, with 14 fully contracted solar assets producing 2.3GW of installed capacity in Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay.

L&W’s team was led by partner Antonio Del Pino (pictured), and included partners David Penna, Sean Finn, Alan Kimball, Jordi Dominguez, Ivan Rabanillo, Nathan Seltzer, Adam Kestenbaum, Robert Frances, Chris Norton, Fernando Colomina, Maria Jose Descalzo and Drew Levin; counsels Marcela Ruenes, Laura Szarmach, Aaron Friberg and Brett Ackerman; and associates John Karantonis, Carlos Ardila, Daley King, Costanza García, María Pilar Villanueva, Francisco Lanusse, Ana Nuñez Cárdenas, Grace Tang, Matthew Crawford, Ashley Weeks, Tiiu Lemsalu, Aitor Errasti, Leticia Sitges and Harrison White.
