Corporate and M&A

Within: Corporate and M&A

Miranda & Amado remains hard to beat for complex, high-value and cross-border transactions, often earning the role of regional Latin American co-ordinator for deals. The heavyweight, 26-lawyer team, matched in resources by few firms in the market, provides ‘excellent industry knowledge, good response times and precise advice’. Clients also rate the personalised service: namely, attention from partners and an understanding of the client’s business. Luis Miranda succeeded Bruno Amiel as corporate head, with Amiel stepping up into the firm’s strategy committee. Miranda brings ‘commitment and creativity’ to the table and led advice to fuel retailer Primax on its $300m purchase of almost 450 petrol stations from competitor Grupo Pecsa. The experienced Roberto MacLean, assisted by banking and insurance specialist Rafael Corzo and head of tax Rocío Liu, acted for Intercorp Financial Services on its $268m acquisition of Peruvian insurance and mortgage companies Seguros Sura and Hipotecaria Sura from Sura Asset Management and Group Wiese respectively. The department’s six corporate and M&A-focused partners also include: the ‘very sharpBruno Amiel, who has a ‘strong character which is perfect in a tough negotiation environment’; Nathalie Paredes, who led TC Latin America Partners on its acquisition of Villa en El Polo real estate project, comprising the construction of 941 apartments in Lima; and Anahi Com. The 20-strong associate bench includes María Pía Talavera, who ‘stands out’ for her ‘relevant legal advice’. Clients include Telefónica del Perú, International Finance Corporation (IFC) and Mexican pharmaceutical, Laboratorios Sanfer.
