- What does your firm do? Orihuela Abogados is a boutique law firm that provides legal advice to international clients with business in the United States and Latin America since 2007. The firm has a strong specialization in corporate anti-corruption prevention and compliance, an area of law in which it is a pioneer in Peru’s legal market.
- How did the firm start and how did it grow? Orihuela was founded in July 2007 as a boutique law firm dedicated to advising international clients doing business in Peru and in Latin America. The firm has been involved in and gained important expertise on cross-border complex M&A transactions, particularly in mining, engineering, agri-business, and pharmaceutical industries.Due to the increasing international enforcement of anti-corruption regulations from the U.S., Canada and the U.K., as well as enhancements to local laws underway in Latin America, demonstrating the region’s greater interest in also establishing serious enforcement regimes, we became educated, well-trained and developed a unique expertise in anti-corruption compliance of the FCPA in Latin America.Given the firm’s international corporate experience, we feel strongly – as do most of our clients — that investing in anti-corruption compliance allows companies to stay ahead of the curve.Orihuela has a multi-lingual multidisciplinary legal team with important work experience in local and international law firms, and who has also served as in-house lawyers for multinational companies.
