					       The law firm Andino & Dorato, founded in 1973, has 36 years of proven
professional experience in the practice of law.

       The firm’s organization enables us to practice different areas of law through the
work of qualified lawyers specialized in each area, who practice law without losing sight of
the unity of the system or of the values and background that define the Law Firm’s track
record and the prestige of a profession.

         The firm has gained proven experience in assisting company-related businesses
and disputes and has provided legal advice on most areas of law connected with company
activities.

         The Firm’s staff is qualified to participate- within their areas of practice- in a wide
variety of legal issues at the two levels in which business activities are conducted: at the
internal level (related to the organization), on Labor Law and Company Business issues;
and at the external level (concerning the relationship between the company and its
customers, consumers and suppliers, governmental bodies and the community in general)
and on issues pertaining to the Law of Obligations in its two main branches: Contracts and
Civil Liability, on the one hand, and Administrative Law on the other hand.

        The Firm provides its professional services by responding to consultations, either
orally or in writing, as requested, and through the preparation of opinions and reports on
legal issues related to the pertinent areas; the drafting and analysis of contracts,
agreements and any instrument related to company performance; furbishing legal advice
on negotiations over the execution, development and completion of businesses and
representing clients in mediation, pre-trial or court proceedings, in the event litigation is
necessary.

        Since the Firm’s foundation, its clients have been companies conducting activities
in the following fields: iron & steel, gas, footwear, tourism, clothing and textile industries as
well as real estate agents and developers, manufacturers of construction materials, public
and private works constructors, mortgage originators, providers of professional services
(medicine, architecture, engineering, marketing, management, economics, etc.),
condominium property administrators, traders in several products, business chambers
and non-profit organizations.

          This practical experience has given the Firm great flexibility to rapidly understand
the specific requirements of each business activity and to apply the legal solutions suitable
to each particular case. This, in addition to the business experience of some of its
partners, the theoretical and academic contributions in the of field civil commercial
liabilities made by other partners and the ongoing interaction with the company staff in
charge of each business area appointed to be the link with the Firm, ensures a high quality
legal service, adjusted to each client’s needs either in the form of advice on the areas of
general consultancy, or on one or several branches of law or of a punctual intervention in
a specific matter or litigation.

                                     CONDOMINIUM PROPERTY.


        In particular, the Firm has developed an indisputable specialization in the legal

                                 COMMERCIAL LAW- COMPANIES


       The Firm has taken part in defining the legal aspects of the genesis of a variety of
businesses.

       It has had the responsibility of designing the most suitable kind of business
association whenever an activity is conducted in such a way that it requires a more
complex organization than that needed in the case of individual services.

       It has participated in the formation of several kinds of business organizations,
regulated by either the civil or commercial code, foundations, associations, cooperatives,
corporations, limited liability companies (SRL), joint ventures, by managing the legal
aspects or its formation, drafting their by-laws in whole or in part, or coordinating the task
of other intervening professionals (accountants, notaries public).

        It has intervened in the execution of many joint ventures (with the characteristics
set forth by Argentine laws), not only in relation to the formal aspects of their organization,
but also by taking part in the meetings with the shareholders to ensure a precise and
legally guaranteed determination of the scope of the association by defining accurately its
purpose, the shareholders’ rights and liabilities and the manner of liquidation, all points to
which public entities pay zealous attention in the case of public bids.

        On a regular and uninterrupted basis, the Firm advises its clients in all legal
aspects related to the adopted kind of business organization about which we are
consulted: such as shareholders’ and board meetings, among other issues; and has
participated in the resolution of internal company disputes arising from said issues, often
by means of mediation tools conducive to out-of-court solutions.

        The Firm’s vocation and style leads its staff to propose and attend business
meetings with other professionals advising their clients, in particular with accountants, in
order to harmonize criteria and establish compatible and common guidelines that may be
easily and homogenously applied by the companies’ officials and employees in charge of
implementing said guidelines.

        In addition, the Firm has acquired significant professional experience in all matters
related to the trusts set forth in accordance with law 24,441: investment, administration or
guarantee trusts. Also, since the time prior to the enactment of the law, the Firm has been
contributing to the dissemination of the knowledge of the scope of such trusts and of their
application to different business, both public and private, in connection with cases that
range from banking operations to urban developments and has participated in the drafting
of the bill about the creation of trusts with certain assets belonging to the Federal State.

       Therefore, the Firm also has the potential for contributing to the development of
new businesses included in the regime set forth in law 24,441, when such regime is
applicable to certain activities.

                                    LABOR LAW ISSUES.


         The Firm intervenes in these matters on the assumption that Labor Law, although
an autonomous branch of law, cannot be separated from other legal fields that contribute
to efficient, balance and coherent company performance.

       The Firm’s professional experience enables it to assert that, when this area is
neglected- usually in those cases where an “inevitable” ending is expected, or when this
area is managed as a minor section of the organization chart- the consequences are
usually serious, once the potential extent of the claims arising from labor relationships
becomes apparent, since said amounts often exceed the company’s usual profits,
especially if the latter is a “PyME” (small and medium-sized company).

         The Firm’s partners have had significant and specific experiences in all aspects of
Labor Law, from employment law issues (employment contract: execution, fulfillment and
breach) to labor law matters (collective bargaining agreement, union negotiations); from
litigious practice (among others, with the person who later headed the Association of Labor
Law Attorneys) to academic activities (with thesis on the relationship between the current
damages law and labor and employment law) from the point of view of the unions (e.g. as
advisors to the UOM [Steel Workers Union] and FOEVA [Workers and Employees of the Wine
Industry and Related Activities]) or as president or representatives of business entities in
collective bargaining talks before the National Ministry of Labor (e.g. the collective
bargaining agreements of the UOCRA [Construction Workers’ Union of the Republic of
Argentina] and the SEC [Commercial Employees’ Union].

       The expertise gained in this wide range of activities related to Labor Law, has
enabled the Firm to develop efficient ways of advice, prevention, conciliation and legal
defense, as required, applying to these tasks the distinct point of view of people who have
been advisors to unions and companies, mediators, company directors; professors who
have related these matters with other branches of law, leaders of business entities,
representatives of such entities in collective bargaining talks and attorneys who apply
Labor Law in their daily activities.

        Thus, we think that the Firm is capable of making serious and valuable
contributions to provide order and higher efficiency in the field of company’s labor
relationships.

                                           LITIGATION.

       The Firm has adopted the criterion of not creating a specific area in order to
provide services exclusively in the case of the court or out-of-court resolution of disputes
that may arise from conducting business or professional activities.

       The Firm considers that a dispute is not an isolated issue within the management
of a company, and that the causes and resolution of a dispute cannot be foreign to such
management. Therefore, its litigation area has been organized as an extension of the
previous professional assistance, so that litigation is conducted by the same professional
in charge of the regular assistance to the client.

       All the Firm’s attorneys are qualified to deal with procedural matters and able to
manage in an efficient manner all the proceedings in which they have to intervene.
Consultation with other areas, and the subsequent sharing of practical experience and
theoretical knowledge, is the usual practice in this and in all areas.

        Thus, all legal cases are dealt with by taking into account the knowledge of the
client and its activity rather than an alleged specialization in a purely formal procedural
aspect. This ensures a stronger emphasis on the points of law involved in the litigation,
without neglecting a proven experience in the instrumental aspects of the process.

        In order to enhance the efficiency of its management of legal cases, all the Firm’s
professionals are linked to each other and to the persons in charge of litigating the cases
in court through an intranet. In addition, the Firm has state-of-the-art computer systems for
the follow up of pending cases, including a strict control of deadlines.

        In all cases in which, due to the complexity or the money amount required by it, the
professionals working as technical advisors to the Firm, are capable of and used to
providing advise on the scientific areas of their specialty, preparing the matters to be
submitted to expert witnesses and, in particular, controlling the official expert witnesses
that may intervene in the process.

        In the event the client entrusts only one or several legal issues to the Firm, one of
the partners – preferable the most qualified in the subject matter under litigation- will be
assigned to the client and will take primary responsibility for the management of the case
and the assistance to said client and will inform him or her of the progress of the case and
of the requirements to be satisfied in connection with the same.

                                       CONTRACT LAW.

         In order to manage properly the wide scope of commercial, industrial and service
activities of the companies that have been its clients since it was founded, the Firm has
had to draft several and varied contracts: agency, sales, building, leasing and service
agreements, authorizations, purchase orders, memorandums of understanding, purchase
options and even instruments such as by-laws, internal regulations, all kinds of
agreements, deposit agreements, contract of surety and guarantee agreements in general,
as well as very specific contracts related to certain activities such as façon, trusts,
concessions, licenses, special works, etc.

        Aiming to facilitate businesses dependant on future or contingent circumstances,
the Firm has drafted special clauses establishing conditions precedents or conditions
subsequent that have been used on a regular basis by several companies after having
being adopted as usual practice by several business chambers. The Firm has also taken
part in working committees created to reach agreements on the stipulations to be included
in presentations and on the lists of conditions related to public and private bids.

        The Firm has analyzed, discussed and amended agreements or instruments
drafted by third parties but aimed to be entered into by our clients, such as mortgage,
adhesion agreements or applications establishing obligations and has drafted many
reservations of rights clauses in those cases in which the client has had the inexorable
need to accept pre-written agreements in order to continue conducting its business
efficiently.

        Also, the Firm has proven and specific experience in two kinds of contracts of a
relatively recent occurrence in Argentine law: trust and leasing, both of them introduced by
law 24,441, and its pertinent amendments. Furthermore, and in addition to its participation
in the legislative debates on said norm, the Firm has participated actively in the application
of said contracts to different business hypothesis that have proved to be more efficient if
conducted under said type of contracts. :

        The diffusion of the aforesaid through several institutions and the teaching of the
same through their academic activities at universities provide the Firm with a special
training to develop the different kinds of contracts and business agreements which not are
not only suitable for the specific requirements of each business or activity but also
decrease the risk of litigation, provided that the provisions included in said agreements are
specific, clear and fair, aspects of which the Firm takes the utmost care.

                                        BILLING POLICY

                                                Fees


       The Firm has designed a fees policy which offers great flexibility and can be
adjusted easily both to the client’s need and to the nature of the matter entrusted to us.

      The Firm’s fees are determined on the basis of the regularity (a common feature in
accounts), the number of billable hours required (opinions and consultation) or the money
amount and complexity involved in the case (usually in dispute cases).

        The Firms provides professional services under any of the above mention fee
calculation criteria, chosen to suit the kind of task entrusted to us and taking into account
the client’s policy as on request for legal advisory services.

         Flat fees are calculated taking into account the requested professional service, the
number of areas of practice required and estimating the number of billable hours on the
basis of said circumstances. Such estimate is adjusted from time to time in order to adapt
it to actually verified requirements.

       Usually, the Firm agrees with its clients a fee that results from a combination of the
three fee calculation criteria mentioned above, so that if a professional request exceeds
the amount of the flat fee rate, the consultation fee will be lower for the clients paying such
rate, and, if the case became litigious, the fees for representation- either fixed or a
percentage rate- will absorbe those paid for previous consultations.

       Therefore, our clients may rely on the fact that the fees are established in direct
proportion to the service required and will be restricted to the case- or the stage of said
cage, in the event of a partial intervention- since all additional fees would be agreed in
advanced.

        This is due to the fact that, in all cases- even in the cases in which it may be
entrusted to third parties pursuant to an agreement or a sentence ordering the payment of
legal costs- the Firm establishes its fees in advance and in writing, whether it is the flat-fee
agreement, when the relationship is established on the basis of this form of payment or
when a specific case or business is entrusted to it. The Firm will always keep a record of
the fees agreed, and the client will not be required to pay any further amount arising from
our intervention.

        In addition, the Firm will inform the client in advance of all the costs usually related
to the task entrusted to it and will provide him or her with detailed reports of the costs
arising from our assistance.
