Recent work for Rubio Leguía Normand has included high-value matters, with the firm advising US gold mining company Newmont Corporation on a series of equity interest transfers with Compañía de Minas Buenaventura, involving mining royalties and multimillion-dollar cash payments. This matter was led by practice co-heads Carlos Arata and long-time mining specialist Emil Ruppert.  The March-2020 arrival of practice co-head Andrés Kuan-Veng kick-started an uptick in the practice group’s caseload, and he too has been involved in multimillion-dollar mandates, such as advising Intipuquio in one of the largest equity IPOs launched on the Lima Stock Exchange. The team often advises on the acquisition of share holdings via public tender offers (for both vendors and purchasers). with Arata’s advice to investment bank BTG Pactual and the shareholders of Aenza regarding a cross-border share sale to Jersey investment fund IG4 Capital, a case in point. Dual-qualified (Peru/England & Wales) senior associate Wilfredo Cáceres, who frequently assists Arata, also advised on this matter. Rounding out the team of practice co-heads, Claudia Chong provides day-to-day corporate advice on matters such as drafting of resolutions, amendments to by-laws and establishing branches. However, former practice co-head César Luna Victoria  moved to Rebaza, Alcázar & De Las Casas in March 2022, and recent hire (and principal associate) Janett Burga left for EY Peru in May 2022.
