Cuatrecasas already has a strong presence in Mexico, Colombia and Brazil and over 20 years’ experience in the region. The Peru office focuses on developing the following practices: Corporate and M&A, Project Finance-Infrastructure, Arbitration, Labor and Employment, and Tax.
The firm bases part of its business strategy on becoming a leading law firm in Latin America, capable of offering expert advice on its clients’ most complex issues in the main Latin American markets. With the Lima office, Cuatrecasas enhances the advisory service it provides to the many Spanish companies operating in Peru, combines synergies with its other offices in the region and on other continents, and positions itself as the local firm of reference for the projects in Peru of European and international law firms with which it has strategic relationships.
