Event Report

The Legal 500 returned to Peru with a bang for the 2024 edition of our Powerlist series at The Westin Lima alongside top Peruvian law firm Estudio Muniz. Over 90 in-house lawyers were in attendance, with the GCs selected for this year’s publication being joined by a number of highly talented in-house rising stars, who based on their achievements relatively early on in their careers can be expected to guide and advise the Peruvian business scene for many years to come.

Mauricio Olaya Nohra, principal partner at Estudio Muniz, gave the first welcome speech, congratulating those on the list and talking about recent developments within Peru’s business scene.

Principal partner Jorge Muñiz Ziches followed up by speaking about some of the trends he has seen from the clients he has advised, emphasising the commitment his firm has to supporting Peru’s general counsel through whatever challenges they may face.

From the in-house side, keynote speaker Alejandra Uribe, Chief legal officer at Parque Arauco said a few words on stage on behalf of her distinguished contemporaries, emphasising the necessity of collaboration among the community to face issues effectively.
