Miranda & Amado appoints new partners

The Firm bolsters its Natural Resources and Infrastructure Projects and Labor practices with Isabel Lira and Carlos Cadillo

Miranda & Amado is pleased to announce the enhancement of the firm’s practice areas with the appointment of two new partners: Isabel Lira (Natural Resources and Infrastructure Projects) and Carlos Cadillo (Labor).

Boasting a long history in the firm—Isabel Lira became an associate in 2008 and Carlos Cadillo has worked as an associate and counselor since 2019—, both lawyers will become partners effective January 1, 2021.

These appointments are in line with the firm’s goal of strengthening its practice areas and supporting the professional growth of its most talented team members. From their new positions, Lira and Cadillo will bring their full expertise and knowledge to continue the customized assistance offered by Miranda & Amado to its clients, especially in view of the major challenges that the current situation poses to their specific practices. The COVID-19 crisis has significantly driven up the demand for labor advisory services, as companies need to manage the pandemic’s impact on their activities and work teams. At this juncture, Peru must foster during 2021 the execution of public and private investment projects as one of the cornerstones of economic recovery. Hence the pivotal role to be played by the Natural Resources and Infrastructure Projects practice in this scenario.
