Enrique Felices - Miranda & Amado

Within: Projects and infrastructure

Miranda & Amado is a heavyweight in the sector, providing ‘superb service delivery’ that is ‘super responsive’ and ‘commercial’. A regular in key matters, it recently acted for Banco Santander and Corporación Andina de Fomento (CAF) on its $183m loan to Terminal Portuario Paracas for the development and upgrade of Puerto General San Martín de Pisco project. Past matters also included advice to Minera Las Bambas on the $131m credit facility for PeruRail to build a transfer station in Pillones (for the transportation of copper to the port of Matarani) and acting for Petróleos del Perú on the project development and financing for the modernisation and expansion of the Talara crude oil refinery. The practice is co-lead by energy experts Luis Marcelo De-Bernardis, who has ‘an incredible wealth of knowledge’; and the ‘very intelligent and analytical’ Alberto Delgado. Jorge Córdova moved to DLA Piper Peru, but Enrique Felices re-joined the firm following two years’ absence undertaking senior roles within the government and the OECD.
