Our Argentina lawyers work on some of the most complex matters in Latin America, including advising Brazilian mining company Vale on the contractual and employment issues related to its suspension of Rio Colorado, a mining project in Argentina's Mendoza province halted over economic and nationalization concerns. We managed the termination of US$ 1 billion in construction agreements and subsequent litigation, worked with the unions and negotiated with the provincial and national authorities to maintain Vale's mining rights.
