Banking and finance

Within: Banking and finance

The ‘exceptional’ team at Miranda & Amado draws widespread praise both locally and internationally for its expertise in sophisticated transactions and bank regulatory work, including an impressive track record in establishing and licensing new banks in the jurisdiction. Indeed, it’s regulatory work is ‘at the highest level within Peru and compares very favourably with international firms’, while overall the firm is ‘among the best in Peru in banking and financial matters’. Accordingly, it is the preferred choice for an array of market-leading banks and financial institutions, such as JP Morgan Chase, HSBC and Citibank. The firm acted for Bank of America, Citigroup, Credicorp Capital and JP Morgan Chase as underwriters of Peru LNG’s $940m senior notes issue, and advised leading domestic bank trio BBVA Banco Continental, Banco de Crédito del Perú (BCP) and Scotiabank Peru on their $174m syndicated loan to the Metropolitan Municipality of Lima for its 2016-18 investment plan. Other showcase deals include advice to French investment bank, Natixis and ABN AMRO on their refinancing of a £475m credit facility for commodity trading and logistics company Trafigura Peru, while project finance work included advising Banco Santander and Corporación Andina de Fomento (CAF) on its $183m loan to Terminal Portuario Paracas for the development and upgrade of the Puerto General San Martín de Pisco project. Fees are ‘very reasonable for the quality of the work provided’. Key figures in the ‘knowledgeable’ and well-resourced team are: department head José Miguel Puiggros; Rafael Corzo and Nydia Guevara who together are noted for their ‘good knowledge of the industry’; Juan Luis Avendaño Cisneros, who is ‘very good, not only at providing legal advice but in explaining the regulatory environment’; Roberto MacLean; and Luis Marcelo De-Bernardis.
