"Great team of extremely knowledgeable lawyers, very pragmatic and efficient. Fast and reliable."
Capital markets: Debt
"With their help, we changed our whole business model to a simpler one. They recommended us to operate through a private investment fund as this would be better for our debt funding. Why? Because here in Peru, we only pay 5% for capital gains on debt, instead of the usual 30%."
