Rebaza, Alcázar & De Las Casas

Peru > Bankruptcy and restructuring Tier 1

The pre-eminent corporate restructuring and insolvency team at Rebaza, Alcázar & De Las Casas is well regarded for its advice on public and private restructuring matters, acting for both debtors and creditors. The team is experienced in many sectors, including agro-industry, textiles, retail, fishing, and banking and financial services. It stands out in the market for its dedicated practitioners Gonzalo De las Casas and José Antonio Jiménez, who handle a wide range of matters, including restructurings, reorganisations, distressed M&A, and complex bankruptcy procedures. Daniel Gonzáles is internationally experienced and focuses on corporate reorganisations and restructuring in the construction and industrial sectors; while Marcia Arellano, who was promoted to partner in January 2022, is well versed in contentious insolvency proceedings, IP and unfair competition matters.

Practice head(s):

Gonzalo De Las Casas; José Antonio Jiménez


The restructuring team that we work with at Estudio Rebaza, Alcázar & de las Casas demonstrates a high level of commitment and care towards our company.’

We have had a great experience in a crucial stage of our company, with full complicated negotiations with both local and foreign creditors‘.

The restructuring team was always available to attend to our queries, and they accommodated themselves very easily to the timing of the transaction, which was a complex out-of-court restructuring of our financial debt‘.

In this case, the team managed to adapt to our needs, giving us not only quick answers but also very technical and complex ones, a mixture of deep legal knowledge and a commercial understanding of our business.’

We believe that as a team they stand out widely over their competitors because they not only handle technical legal issues, but also accounting and financial issues.’

From our experience in working with other firms, we are convinced that, in the area of restructuring, there is no better option in services or a better team in Peru than that of the Rebaza, Alcázar & de las Casas.’

They are excellent lawyers who complemented their work in a superlative way, given that Jose Jimenez accumulates great expertise in insolvency and bankruptcy companies, and Daniel Gonzales has a more transactional background that was extremely important when negotiating complex restructuring agreements with creditors and, simultaneously, with the new fund that lent us enough funds to pay existing creditors.’

Very good delivery to the client and counterpart.’
