Muñiz is a member of the Pacific Rim Advisory Council (PRAC), an organisation that groups together over 32 of the most important Pacific Rim law offices, and also joined Interact Law. We are actually the only Firm in Peru with nationwide coverage through a vast network of offices, which makes us offer high quality services in almost every city in Peru.
The firm was the first law fim in Peru in opening a dedicated accounting service to meet the needs of companies and in view of the new criteria of the income tax law regarding the transfer-pricing regime the firm also set up Muñiz Transfer Pricing. Furthermore, there is Semigra, a company that provides migration consultancy. Recently the firm set up an alliance with Intedya, a well-known Spanish company with presence in 16 countries which focuses on implementing compliance programs at several companies.
The firm was the first, and probably still the only one, with a quality control and customer services department. This department is in charge of staying in contact with clients to know how satisfied they were with the service they received.
