Competition and antitrust Tier 1

Muñiz, Olaya, Meléndez, Castro, Ono & Herrera Abogados earns elevation to tier one status with a proven track record of high-profile and business-critical market abuse cases for major companies, including price fixing, dumping and cartels within the construction, energy and retail sectors, to name a few. The firm's role as adviser to China Yangtze Power International/China Three Gorges (CTG) in its $3.6bn acquisition of electrical distribution company Luz del Sur and other companies from Sempra Energy saw the team successfully obtain merger clearance, despite CTG's existing participation in the Peruvian electricity market. Pierino Stucchi 'leads with excellence’ and is praised for his knowledge, 'both legal and practical’. The 'excellent work’ of José Antonio Bezada was rewarded with promotion to partner in 2020, resulting in two partner-level full-time specialists in the team. Key support comes from  senior associates Carlos Rodas (whose experience includes over a decade in the public sector at INDECOPI and OSIPTEL), and Raúl Alosilla.

Testimonials

The firm has provided important legal advice on various issues related to our company and we have had quick, clear responses, good support and timely answers on strategies and decisions to take.’

Most importantly, the lawyers of the firm have demonstrated expertise on the issues and the clear predisposition to help us understand the terms and legal processes in a simple way that allows us to make timely decisions. With respect to the competition, the speed of their responses and their predisposition to be close to us has been a vital difference that has generated confidence in our bankruptcy cases. We would highlight partner Anthony Lizarraga.’

They have deep knowledge of the sector.’

I have worked with Anthony Lizarraga for the last year to secure long overdue payments from two airlines. Throughout this entire process, I have been consistently impressed with Anthony’s commitment to achieving success with the mission. He came up with creative ways to do so and we were able to recover the funds from one of the two companies and are well on the way with the second company.’

They were very communicative, quickly returned calls, very informed and if they did not know something they would say so and then research it or find a specialist in that area. I enjoyed each meeting we had and never felt like I was wasting time. It always felt like I was in great hands. Anthony Lizarraga and Guido Muñiz are a few of the fine folk with whom I have worked.’

Our firm, founded in 1981, relies on a team of professionals highly specialized in the different areas of law and thoroughly familiar with the economic sectors in which they work, which makes our legal services fit perfectly with our clients’ business strategies. We are the only firm in Peru with nationwide coverage through a vast network of offices, which makes us offer high quality services in almost every city in Peru. Our lawyers’ international experience is highly appreciated by our clients in the context of integration with the rest of the world.

We have more than 35 practice areas, offering a high standard of quality services, with specialized professionals for each area, competitive pricing and a timely service. Thanks to the combination of these three factors, our clients are really satisfied with the service we provide, which in turn allows us to build long-lasting relationships.

We designate one account lawyer for each client. This lawyer, whom we call “Attache”, is in charge of looking after the client-firm relationship and proposing the most efficient and cost-effective strategy for each case, transaction or task entrusted to us. If more than one practice group needs to become involved in a case, then the Attache will be in charge of setting up the most appropriate team of lawyers to deal with the case.

Our firm was the first, and probably still the only one, with a quality control customer service department. This department is in charge of staying in contact with clients to know how satisfied they are with the service. Team members permanently work on ways to improve relationships with clients.

The firm has deeply diversified its offer. There is Muniz Transfer Pricing, a sister entity devoted to transfer pricing and Semigra, a company that provides a migration consultancy. Recently the firm has set up an alliance with Intedya, a well known Spanish company with a presence in 16 countries and which is focused on implementing compliance programs to several companies, and with Contalex, a provider of accounting services.
