Corporate and M&A - ranked: tier 3

DLA Piper Peru

DLA Piper Peru has a solid and expanding practice under the direction of partner trio Luis Vargas, Fernando Lanfranco and Sergio Barboza. Vargas, in particular, is consistently recommended by clients for his skill in both general corporate and M&A work. A supporting cast of five associates, including experienced seniors Janilú Badiola and Daniel Flores, completes the team. Impressively, the firm acted for Graña y Montero on its £22m sale of 51% of Compañía Operadora del Gas del Amazonas (COGA) and 51% of Tecgas Inc to Enagas and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB). It also acted for German energy company Lahmeyer International on the sale of 50% of Lahmeyer Agua y Energía to Grupo Ferradas. The practice will benefit from the know-how of new projects and infrastructure partner Jorge Córdova, who joined the firm from Miranda & Amado.

DLA Piper LLP (US)

  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.
