Miranda & Amado gets a double recognition from international publications

• GAR 100 highlights its experience in arbitration

• Latin Lawyer Elite 2015 emphasizes its regional strength through Affinitas

Recently, the prestigious publication Global Arbitration Review published the ninth edition of its GAR 100 guide, which includes the best law firms, worldwide, in arbitration. Miranda & Amado appears as the only Peruvian representative (excluding those firms with offices in other countries).

The guide mentions that Miranda & Amado is “one of the very few Peruvian firms to have acquired an international arbitration profile (…) the firm achieved some early successes in the 2000s (…) But it really made its mark acting for Duke Energy in the first (and, to date, only) successful ICSID claim against Peru.

Latin Lawyer publishes its list of elite firms

Also, Latin Lawyer has released the results of its most recent research, called Latin Lawyer Elite 2015, where law firms were recognized based on five core areas: service offer, institutional strength, international outlook, financial health and social responsibility.

In this occasion, Miranda & Amado is one of the included Peruvian law firms, and the report mentions that “… it has resisted invitations to join forces with foreign firms, favouring referrals from top international firms to maintain its market share of high value work. Instead, the firm is building its regional capabilities by increasing integration with the Affinitas alliance.”

As a matter of fact, all the members of Affinitas – Miranda & Amado, in Peru; Barros & Errázuriz, in Chile; Mijares, Angoitia, Cortés y Fuentes, in México; and Gómez-Pinzón Zuleta, in Colombia – are a part of Latin Lawyer Elite 2015.
