Clients appreciate the level of ‘very personalised attention‘ offered by the deep bench at tax litigation, corporate tax and wealth management specialists, Gálvez, Risso, Zegarra & Asociados. Managing partner Ramón Gálvez-Márquez  and Carolina Risso-Montes are further recognised for their ‘impeccable conduct and great professionalism‘ on operational structuring, and corporate and commercial advisory matters, respectively. The five-strong senior group of lead partners is completed by Carlos Zegarra, who heads up the tax litigation and international trade and customs practices in conjunction with Karen Alegría and transactional added-value analyst, Christian Cáceres. Other work includes customs planning and foreign trade, often in relation to the agribusiness, aviation and pharmaceuticals sectors.


‘They are a very strong team in tax matters, although they also have very good lawyers in other areas, so they are able to provide comprehensive advice. They have very solid theoretical knowledge, but they do not lose sight of the practical approach, which is very important for companies.’

‘We have always received careful and very personalized attention from all the lawyers of this firm with whom we have had contact. Ramón Gálvez and Carolina Risso have solid knowledge and a lot of experience, and they enjoy great recognition in our environment. Their impeccable conduct and great professionalism make them highly credible professionals, both in the private and public sectors.’

‘Tax issues contain aspects of very high specialisation. In-house lawyers need to read and sign all the writings that a firm such as Gálvez, Risso, Zegarra & Asociados (GRZ&A) projects to promote technical communication and eventually contribute with the client’s own knowledge. Yes, it compares favourably with teams from other firms. However, I would add that GRZ&A has better equipment than many or the integrity of them. Regarding Ramón Gálvez, he is to be commended for his great knowledge, exercise of great common sense and the integrity of his team members. It is compared with other firms adding to their tax knowledge, which these firms have, the knowledge of the procedural and civil areas that GRZ&A also dominates and satisfactorily intertwines with the tax knowledge, in the exercise of defending its clients.’

‘Compared with other firms adding to their tax knowledge, the knowledge of the procedural and civil areas that GRZ&A also masters and satisfactorily intertwines with the tax knowledge, in the exercise of the defense of its clients. The firm’s best quality is to involve the internal lawyer in the deliberations and the frank search for a way out in which we all buy into the strategy and tactics to be applied. They are outstanding: Carolina Risso Montes (partner), Ramón Gálvez Márquez (partner), Viviana Cossio Carrasco and Gabriel Espejo (associates).’
