Use of the infinitive

Hola,

I just need to understand in this following sentence why 'le explicas' isn't used instead? 

Podrías hablar con la jefa y explicarle la situación.

Is it treated as following poder rather than hablar?

Gracias,

Hola Stuart,

Yes, it is following the same structure with "podrías", that's why:

"Podrías hablar con la jefa y [podrías] explicarle la situación."

Saludos
