Public law and regulation Tier 1

Rubio Leguía Normand excels in this arena, posting a far-reaching catalogue of high-stakes matters this year, several of them of national impact. A case in point was its advice to US company Everbridge on the implementation and start-up of the Emergency Early Alert Messaging System (SISMATE), to warn the Peruvian population about emergencies via their mobile devices. Team leader Milagros Maraví earns respect from both peers and clients for her expertise in public tenders and complex regulatory policy matters; she is 'extremely perceptive’, according to clients, and 'one of the best lawyers we have ever worked with’. She is assisted by a strong team of associates, among whom are principal associate Milagros Mendoza, particularly skilled in PPPs; and fellow principal associate Arturo Ruiz, who has niche expertise in water resources regulation. The more junior María Claudia Castro is 'responsive, diligent and detail-oriented’.

Expansion of the team continued unabated with the hire of Claudia Chong from Berninzon & Benavides Abogados in June 2019 - she brings 20 years' corporate experience to the practice; and of the well-known Andrés Kuan-Veng, former head of banking and finance at Muñiz, Olaya, Meléndez, Castro, Ono & Herrera Abogados who adds considerable weight to the capital markets capability of the firm.

In all cases, the contribution was first rate, with quick responses and knowledge of the market and legislation.
