Outstanding‘firm Miranda & Amado is at the forefront of high-end litigation and international arbitration, evidenced by a sizeable caseload of arbitral matters (including eight international arbitrations during the past year alone) and high-value matters before the judicial courts. Mandates include acting as local counsel to Autopista del Norte (in conjunction with the Paris office of Dechert LLP) in a $200m ICSID case against Republic of Peru and concerning delays on the construction of a major road in northern Peru; the advice is led by department head Mauricio Raffo, who is praised for his skill in the courtroom, supported by recently made-up Cristina Ferraro. On the litigious front, the firm is currently representing Repsol, Gas Natural de Lima y Callao (Cálidda) and Telefónica del Perú in various matters that demonstrate the firm’s expertise in regulated industry disputes. The practice stands out for the depth of its team, with Raffo heading a total of six partners and 26 associates that includes: leader in the field Juan Luis Avendaño V, international arbitration specialist José Daniel Amado and last year’s dispute specialist hires, Giovanni Priori and Santiago Carrillo, who have bedded into the practice seamlessly and lead on many key mandates. Key support comes from highly-experienced counsels Sara Taipe and Giancarlo Cresci.
