About Us

The Firm

WHAT SETS US APART

We are one of the leading law firms in Peru. Established in Lima, the firm – with over 100 lawyers – provides complete legal advising with the highest quality and constantly incorporates the best international standards. We embody a different way of seeing and feeling the legal practice: committed, modern, ethical, rigorous and human.

INNOVATING FROM THE BEGINNING

In 2001, only two years after Miranda & Amado was founded, Chambers & Partners’ The World’s Leading Lawyers described us as “future leaders of the Peruvian market”. The same institution recognized us, in 2009, as the Best Law Firm of Peru; meanwhile, in 2010 and 2013, we were recognized as the Peruvian firm with the Best Client Service. Also, we are the only Peruvian law firm shortlisted for the Chambers Global Awards in the category of Best Law Firm of Latin America.

In Miranda & Amado we offer counsel in processes of investment and development of infrastructure, generation and transportation of energy; transportation, distribution and export of gas; construction of interoceanic highways, sea ports, airports and water transfer systems; and, also, in projects of international expansion of Peruvian businesses, in financing operations in global markets such as New York, London, and several places from Asia and Latin America, and in complex commercial, regulatory, labor and tax disputes.

Corporate Values

RECOGNIZING TALENT

We recognize professional merit and excellence. We demand intellectual sophistication from our members. We encourage the search for innovative solutions and reward talent to create concrete contributions for our clients. We open opportunities for young lawyers to shape our organization, and strive to attract and retain leading professionals so we can offer high quality service in all legal areas.

CREATING VALUE

Our business is our clients’ business. We provide legal services that are integrated into our clients’ corporate management. We advise each company all along the value creation cycle, from the birth of the company or the beginning of a project, to the development of strategies, to the creation of specific business opportunities. We deliver integral legal services based on a thorough understanding of business thinking. We create returns for our clients’ investments.

TEAMWORK

We truly work as a team. We are a modern firm in both our legal practice and our organization, and do not believe in traditional workplace hierarchies. We know how to stand at the top or the bottom of the line so we can work as a broad network, combining our talents to provide the best possible service. Our firm speaks with one voice. When our clients ask for advice from one of our members, they really receive support from our entire team.

ETHICS AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We have a track record of ethical, transparent and responsible conduct. We plainly avoid conflicts of interest in our daily practice. In order to work globally, we adopt world-class corporate standards. We act responsibly in our relationship with society and with the world in which we live, and commit a significant number of pro bono hours to issues such as environmental compliance and access to legal services and justice.

Documentation Center

The Documentation Center (CENDOC, for its Spanish abbreviation) is the entity responsible of managing the information that serves as consultation tool for the employees of Miranda & Amado. Also, it organizes and manages the documents generated in the different legal practices, as a result of the interaction between the lawyers and the clients. Therefore, one of its main responsibilities is guarding and maintaining the confidentiality of its document archive, as it contains private and confidential information.

Since 2010, CENDOC from Miranda & Amado is certified under ISO 9001 in the service of “Management and sharing of documents and information” (Excluded requirements: 7.3 Design and development; 7.6 Control of the Equipment of Monitoring and Measurement). This way, our services are provided with the utmost strict standards from our Quality Management System (SGC, for its Spanish acronym), in order to contribute with the development of the legal practice performed by the lawyers of the firm.

It must be mentioned that no other legal documentation center in the country has this certification.
