Peruvian law firm De Bracamonte, Haaker, Castellares Abogados (DHC) appointed Tabata Arteta Pinto to a partner level position. She will lead the new litigation and arbitration practice made up of three lawyers and three assistants. She joins a team of five partners and 34 associates.
With over 18 years’ experience in the market, Arteta has broad experience in litigation and arbitration matters including damages compensation cases, administrative litigation, commercial processes, medical negligence, annulment and execution of arbitration awards, arbitrations derived from contracts with the government in construction matters and commercial arbitrations.
She is a graduate of the faculty of law and political sciences of the University of Lima. Prior to joining the firm, she worked as a partner in the litigation and arbitration area of Kennedys Peru for two years and before that, worked as a partner in the litigation area of Barrios & Fuentes for eight years.
In addition, Tabata acts as arbitrator for the Arbitration Center of the Lima Chamber of Commerce (CCL), the Arbitration and Conflict Resolution Center of the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru and of the International Arbitration Center of the American Chamber of Commerce of Peru (AMCHAM).
The team has extensive experience in litigation and arbitration of commercial matters, civil matters, contracting with the state and administrative litigation, among others. Likewise, the litigation team has a recovery area, working with financial entities to recover their accounts on default. The litigation area provides advice to the client from the preliminary stage, accompanying them in negotiations and in judicial processes or arbitrations, when applicable. In addition, the litigation and arbitration team has broad experience handling contentious-administrative processes, in which the validity of acts of the public administration is questioned and discussed and provides advice on medical malpractice issues, advising various clinics in the Peruvian market.
The incorporation of Tabata and her team will see the firm provide greater services to its clients and satisfy the demand for services of a procedural and arbitration nature. For DHC members, the incorporation of Tabata occurs at a key time, since it will allow them to provide a platform to their clients for all the contingencies that will arise from the crisis caused by Covid-19, such as the breakdown in the payment chain, breach of contracts and the consequent judicial processes and arbitrations.
