Muñiz, Olaya, Meléndez, Castro, Ono & Herrera Abogados fields a hefty 16-lawyer team -with seven partners- in its practice group. Comprised of ‘highly-experienced‘ practitioners, the team includes name partners Fernando Castro (department head) and Daniel Ono, both highly-skilled in all aspects of tax law. The firm boasts an impressive client list that includes Diageo Peru, Citibank and Cementos Bio Bío, all new gains this year, joining Telefónica del Perú, Nissan and Graña y Montero on the roster. Partner Jorge Otoya stands out for his ‘detailed‘ and ‘competent, accurate and reliable‘ advice, say clients; he and Castro are working in tandem to advise Telefónica in its long-running, high-profile case against SUNAT -now at the Supreme Court- concerning a disputed $1.5bn tax bill. Other work includes acting for Chinese retailer Miniso Peru, another new client, on the tax planning of all its fledgling businesses in Peru, including a structure to enhance tax efficiency for future investors. Frezzia Saavedra was promoted to partner and associate Cesar Angulo  is also noted.
