Corporate and M&A

Within: Corporate and M&A

Very good at an international level and outstanding on a Peruvian level’, Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano – Abogados is the firm of choice for many leading US and UK firms requiring Peruvian counsel. It fields a hefty 16 partners and 25 associates, led by Jean Paul Chabaneix (finance and M&A practice) and Ramón Vidurrizaga (corporate practice), providing a ‘360° view of transactions’ and ‘excellent, professional’ service. The firm’s ‘senior attorneys have extensive experience and knowledge’; Chabaneix, in particular, is widely lauded for his ‘integrity and skill’ and ‘impressive performance, especially in high-pressure scenarios’. He led Peruvian advice to China Southern Power Grid International in its $1.3bn acquisition of a 27.8% interest in Chilean transmission company Transelec from Canadian private equity investor Brookfield; he also advised United Health Group on its launch in Chile, Peru and Colombia through its $2.7bn acquisition of private health insurer Banmédica. Other star performers include: Eduardo López, who advised IFM Investors on its $2.6bn acquisition of Obrascon Huarte Lain (OHL)’s infrastructure concessions subsidiary; Luis Enrique Palacios, Jorge Trelles, Alfonso Montoya and Juan Diego De Vinatea, who is ‘very constructive on a deal’. Among associates, Fernando Hurtado de Mendoza is ‘very commercial and aware of clients’ needs’ and Nicolás Cornejo is ‘very committed to any project and capable of addressing any difficult issue’. The team’s clients include: Sempra Energy, Prudential Financial, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan and I Squared Capital.

Dispute resolution

Within: Dispute resolution

Dominant force Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano – Abogados excels in contentious work, the result of a hefty team of 11 partners and 14 associates handling civil, commercial and public law disputes at the highest level, including international arbitrations. Although it is a ‘considerably big firm, they manage to give a personal and detailed service’ and has a ‘great pool of lawyers that coordinate every case with all partners’. Lead partners include: José Tam, a very well-known litigator and current chair of the Peruvian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce; Ramón Vidurrizaga; and the highly-praised Luis Bedoya, who is a ‘leader in his area’ of civil procedure and commercial disputes and a seasoned counsel before various international arbitration forums, including the ICC. A distinguishing feature of the firm is its established white-collar crime practice. It is led by José Reaño and Enrique Piedra, who both previously worked for the anti-corruption authorities. Another stand-out feature, according to clients, is the team’s ‘speed of attention, and multidisciplinary and practical approach’. Among an extensive caseload are multiple arbitrations against government bodies concerning concession and PPP agreements, very high-value construction arbitrations on behalf of leading domestic companies, and judicial and international arbitration proceedings against the state government on behalf of a US investment fund. Clients include DP World, Melia Hotels International, Lima Airport Partners and Hudbay Peru.
