Cuatrecasas continues its international expansion and focus in Latin America by opening a new office in Lima (Peru). The firm, which already has a strong presence in Mexico, Colombia and Brazil and over 20 years of experience in the region, is finalizing details before starting to operate in Peru.

One of the firm's most recent decisions has been to hire Aldo Reggiardo who, up until now, was a partner at one of Peru’s leading law firms. Once the Partners Meeting gives the go ahead, Mr. Reggiardo will join the Cuatrecasas team as partner in charge of the finance and project finance-infrastructure practices. Carlos Lasarte and José Moya have already moved to Lima to develop the finance and corporate, and M&A practices, respectively.

The new office will focus on developing the corporate-M&A, project finance-infrastructure, and arbitration practices, and will have the support of the tax practice. In the coming months, the team is expected to have over 15 Peruvian lawyers, and new partners will be hired to lead each area of activity.

One of the key points of the firm’s Strategic Plan is to become a leading law firm in Latin America, capable of offering expert advice on our clients’ most complex issues in the main Latin American markets. With the opening of the Lima office, Cuatrecasas aims to (i) boost the advisory service it provides to the many Spanish companies operating in Peru, making use of the synergies with its other offices in the region and on other continents; and (ii) become the local firm of reference for the projects in Peru of European and international law firms with which it has strategic relationships. The firm aims to offer Peru a service with high added value that stands out from the rest, exporting its international best practices and quality standards, as it did when it opened offices in Mexico and Colombia.
