Banking and finance Tier 4

BBGS Abogados fields a modest team of six lawyers led by partners Carlos Saco-Vertiz and Eduardo Landerer, both with many years’ experience of local and international finance matters, and the more recently made-up Gerardo Guzmán. The firm’s network of regional offices makes it ideal for mid-market cross-border transactions on behalf of both lenders and borrowing companies. It recently acted for Peru’s largest domestic bank, Banco de Crédito del Perú (BCP), in its role as collateral agent on several high-value financings, including $360m acquisition finance provided to InRetail Peru for the purchase of Makro Supermayorista.
