Peruvian law firm Miranda & Amado has bolstered its natural resources and infrastructure projects and labor practices with the promotion to partner of Isabel Lira and Carlos Cadillo respectively.
Both lawyers have a long history at the Lima-based firm, with Isabel having become an associate in 2008, while Carlos Cadillo also joined the firm as an associate in 2008 and became a counsel in 2019.
“The Covid-19 crisis has significantly driven up the demand for labor advisory services, as companies need to manage the pandemic’s impact on their activities and work teams. At this juncture, Peru must foster during 2021 the execution of public and private investment projects as one of the cornerstones of economic recovery. Hence the pivotal role to be played by the Natural Resources and Infrastructure Projects practice in this scenario.”
Isabel’s professional practice focuses on the development, financing and execution of infrastructure projects, concessions and public-private partnerships, as well as on competition law. She has counseled companies responsible for major infrastructure projects in Peru, across the full spectrum of construction contracts, as well as financial entities, both private and multilateral, that participate in the relevant financing transactions. Isabel’s experience includes road, electricity, port, irrigation and water transfer projects.
In the area of Competition Law, Isabel has acted for several companies in cases of concerted practices and abuse of dominant position in the natural gas, railroad transportation, medical gases and telecommunications markets. After joining Miranda & Amado as an associate in 2008, she worked as an international associate in the New York office of law firm Allen & Overy from 2013-14.
Isabel earned her LLB from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú and her LLM from Harvard University.
Carlos advises clients in labor matters such as consulting, conflict prevention and management, negotiations, arbitration, inspection visits, administrative procedures and judicial proceedings, and training.
His previous experience includes working at Hernández & Cía. Abogados from 2006-08, and, prior to that, at Hernández & Rosselló Abogados.
He holds an LLB from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú and a master’s degree in conflict mediation, negotiation and resolution from the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid. He is listed in the Registry of Arbitrators for the Ministry of Labor and Employment Promotion.
His teaching credentials include labor law courses at the Universidad del Pacífico, Universidad ESAN, Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, Universidad de Piura and the Universidad de Lima.
He has been a featured speaker at academic events and has lectured at several institutions that include chambers of commerce and business associations. He has also authored research articles and opinion pieces and is regularly consulted by the media to share his professional opinion.
“With 113 lawyers and 25 partners, these appointments confirm Miranda & Amado’s commitment to offer top-notch legal advice to its clients through first class professionals in all areas of business advisory services,” the firm said.
