Miranda & Amado stands out for its dual strengths in both sophisticated transactions and banking regulatory work, attracting a strong following among international investments banks and Peru’s largest domestic banks as a result. The firm has been particularly busy this year in high-end debt financing for the mining and infrastructure industries; it acted for Citibank as trustee and onshore security agent in the $229m loan granted by Santander, BBVA Perú and Itaú Corpbanca (New York Branch) to Salaverry Terminal Internacional, a deal led by practice head José Miguel Puiggros. On the banking regulatory side, the firm has historically advised on the establishment of a number of banks in the country and boasts one of the market’s leading practitioners in this sphere in Rafael Corzo. Other star names within the 16-strong team include Juan Luis Avendaño Cisneros, widely admired and a regular lead adviser in headline transactions, and junior partner Gabriela Dañino, who also takes the lead on heavyweight deals; together they led advice to Scotiabank on its $250m loan to Peruvian mining company Compañia Minera Antamina. The ten-strong associate bench includes senior Álvaro Del Valle, noted for his international experience and involvement in key matters. Since publication, Del Valle has been raised to the partnership – effective as of January 2022.
