Other deal highlights saw a team led by Eduardo López act as local counsel to Belmond on its $3.2bn acquisition by Louis Vuitton; while Trelles teamed-up with Luis Enrique Palacios to advise I Squared Capital on its $341m acquisition of a 25% stake in power generation companies Kallpa Generación and Samay I from Energía del Pacífico.
