Financing

  • Description

    We are a leading Firm in providing advice on national and international financing operations. It is a field that requires specific capabilities and specialization to understand the nature, purpose, and features of each operation, for its proper structuring.

    We have collaborated in most of the important financial transactions carried out in the last few years in Peru. Thus, we advise banking syndicates, export promotion agencies, multilateral financial agencies, as well as local borrowing companies on their financing transactions. Our team of lawyers has wide experience in domestic and international financing and has worked with several projects and assignments from different perspectives.

    The most relevant operations we can mention are the following: direct loans, syndicated loans, structured loans, project financing, loans granted by multilateral agencies, loans with export promotion agencies, creation of collateral and trust funds, among others.

      "Their knowledge of cross-border transactions is very important, and just as important is their local understanding. They collaborate very well with lawyers around the world, as well as with the lenders and counterparties."

      "One particular strength is the Baker McKenzie digital platform. This means that you can connect any device – your laptop, tablet, etc – to the online platform and make slight modifications when you need to. This enables the process to be faster, more efficient and more agile."
