Diez Canseco is a highly specialized boutique law firm which has been
consistently devoted to address the most complex matters required by our clients mainly in the Competition, Intellectual Property, Telecommunications, Media and Technology (TMT) and Data Privacy fields. Regardless of how challenging or one-in-a-kind the mandates entrusted to us are, our vision is client-centric and, therefore, we are committed to provide practical solutions in a language that is understandable not only by legal counsels but also by business teams, always under the supervision of a Partner who is the direct responsible for each project
Despite initially focusing on the four topics mentioned above, we have
steadily expanded over the past six years, establishing new departments
and hiring capable partners and senior associates able to handle regulatory issues whether in public utilities sectors (such as electricity or oil and gas) or not; or matters concerning administrative law advice, life sciences, merger clearances, as well as compliance needs.
Litigation is ingrained in our DNA. Our firm is actively involved in litigating some of the high-profile antitrust cases (including leniency and rewards
programs), as well in merger control filings. Moreover, we cover unfair competition, advertising law, consumer protection, bureaucratic barriers, data privacy, bankruptcy law and dumping and subsidies cases in Peru and the Andean Community. Furthermore, in line with our interest to assist our clients not only in a reactive but also in a proactive way, we have made significant efforts to strengthen our involvement in compliance programs, the issuance of opinions concerning commercial initiatives, and daily advice on ordinary course of business issues.
In terms of intellectual property, national and international key players have sought us due to our high degree of specialization in the broadest range of trademark, copyright and patent concerns. We are capable of covering litigation, prosecution and contractual demands such as franchise and license agreements with the same degree of specialization and in a timely manner. Our global network of agents enables us to deliver this service on an international scale as well, leading the IP initiative on multiple jurisdictions that our customers are interested in.
Unlike the vast majority of legal firms on the market, Diez Canseco has a team of professionals who take a unique approach, combining private expertise with an extensive public background at the highest level of many government agencies. Almost all of our team has served as officers at the Peruvian competition and intellectual property agency (INDECOPI), and we have former members of the telecommunications regulatory agency (OSIPTEL), the energy and mining regulatory agency (OSINERGMIN), the Social Security Administration (EsSalud), the Ministry of Justice, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the World Bank (WB), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the Organization of American States (OAS), and the Andean Court of Justice. This powerful background, as well as the strong academic credentials of our team (professors and lecturers at Peruvian most prestigious universities) are key factors in encouraging deference for our views and arguments.
