Leyva has counseled numerous local and foreign clients from multiple business sectors and in different legal areas.

Renewable Energy

Law 1715 of 2014 included tax benefits for non-conventional energy projects. Because the country’s energy matrix relies mostly – eighty-five percent – on water sources, Colombia needs to vary its matrix to find other generation sources, which in origin are precisely opposite to the hydric phenomena, and can therefore be employed in times of rain scarcity.

Leyva has addressed this need by counseling clients from various countries in structuring renewable projects, drafting PPA contracts and contract variations that can be more fiscally advantageous.
