Grau was founded in Lima in 1934 and joined international firm CMS in January 2017. With more than 85 years of experience, is a leading full-service firm with a professional team made up with more than 100 lawyers, offering a client-centric service that combines comprehensive legal local knowledge with a global approach, advising clients from all over the globe, including Asian, European and North American companies.
At CMS Grau we count with a Dispute Resolution practice characterized by bringing together an interdisciplinary team of lawyers with wide and recognized experience in litigation at the judicial and arbitral level. Our advice includes a preventive strategy towards the conflict in order to solve our client’s problems in the shortest time possible. In the context of the dispute, our advice covers the design of an efficient procedural strategy and representation throughout the judicial or arbitration process (local or international), to achieve a successful outcome for our clients´ interests.
Our compliance service encompasses the identification and analysis of risks within the company’s activities related to corruption, money laundering and white-collar crimes. We assist our clients in the design and implementation of compliance programs with a fully integrated service that includes not only the design of a compliance manual or program but also the full developing of all of the necessary controls, procedures and protocols in order to duly prevent the company’s exposure which set us aside from the usual services that are provided in the local market. With a unique team comprised of both lawyers and industrial engineers, our practice also implements compliance programs according to the ISO 37001 anti-bribery management system standard.
Several of our lawyers have master’s degrees and have completed postgraduate studies in Europe and the United States. Many of us have trained in US law firms and have held offices in government. This experience, coupled with extensive on-the-job training, enables us to offer our clients a unique approach.
