Peru > Banking and finance

Cuatrecasas‘ Peru office has perhaps been a little over-looked with the recent expansion of the firm’s offices in Chile and -particularly in terms of finance- Colombia; nevertheless the Lima operation continues to consolidate its presence, most recently with the hire of corporate, structured and project financing specialist Ana María Sánchez from Rebaza, Alcázar & De Las Casas in February 2022, extending the team’s infrastructure-finance capabilities. She joins a team that seeks to provide comprehensive advisory in the sector, from acquisition, corporate and project finance, to direct lending, refinancing and restructuring, and the incorporation of public investment funds. The team is led by office managing partner Aldo Reggiardo who also has extensive project finance experience; his recent mandates include advising on the structuring of a microfinance program. Primarily involved with in-bound investment, fellow partner and finance specialist Carlos Lasarte handles debt assignments, restructuring, refinancing, and acquisition and corporate finance. Recently promoted partner Kiomi Osorio‘s practice centres on financings and corporate M&A; former fellow senior Victor León Chiri left the firm in March 2022.

The firm has a varied practice with a strong record in energy and infrastructure M&A, along with project development and project finance.
