Cuatrecasas has hired a new partner for its Lima office. Juan Pablo Porto joins the team as the partner in charge of the Tax Practice.

The firm now has five partners in its Lima office. Aldo Reggiardo is the partner in charge of the Finance and Project Finance-Infrastructure Practices, partner Oscar Trelles heads the Corporate and M&A Practice, and partners Carlos Lasarte and José Moya have been developing these practices together with Reggiardo and Trelles, respectively. Now, Juan Pablo Porto strengthens the firm’s cross-sectoral legal advice.

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 Corporate and M&A, Project Finance-Infrastructure, Arbitration, Labor and Employment, and Tax Practices.

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.

Cuatrecasas 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 in Mexico and Colombia.
