Administrative Law and Regulations

As a consequence of the active role played by Hope, Duggan & Silva in the privatization process (see Privatizations), the lawyers of the firm have had a substantial exposure to all types of regulatory matters since the early enactment of the regulatory frameworks.

The absence of national precedents for rules governing public services provided by privately owned companies and the difficulties in adapting the foreign regulations encouraged its lawyers to turn their attention to this area of law and to remain permanently updated in the various changes which occurred in the past decade.
Within this new environment, the firm continued giving advice on administrative law representing its clients in their relations with the National and Provincial Governments, the regulatory bodies and other players in the regulated industries.
