Banking and FinanceBanking and Finance


Financial institutions and large corporations need advice based on multiple, modern, and creative work scenarios. In a context of constant change, today’s corporate financing requires a new kind of understanding and strategy. As such, legal services must involve not only a sophisticated management of the law, but also a knowledge of the financial methods and tools used by the agents involved in a transaction, as well as the activities, businesses, and projects for which financing is sought.

Our law firm provides specialized consultancy on bank loans, whether direct or syndicated, domestic or international. We also take part in financing operations for projects or the acquisition of companies, leasing and leaseback operations, structured financing, commercial, investment, and development banking, and corporate finance in general. Our services also cover the structuring and negotiation of all types of guarantees, including the establishment of trusts.

We provide counsel to domestic and foreign entities on matters of banking and financial consultancy, in processes for the authorization of the organization and establishment of banking and financial companies, the establishment of branches and agencies by foreign banks, as well as general compliance with said companies’ obligations before Peru’s regulatory body, the Superintendency of Banking, Insurance, and Private Pension Fund Management Companies (SBS).
