L&E Global Extends its Influence in Latin America

L&E Global continues to expand its footprint in Latin America with the addition of a new member firm in Peru: Muñiz, Olaya, Meléndez, Castro, Ono & Herrera Abogados (‘Estudio Muñiz’).

Based in Lima, Estudio Muñiz is a full-service law firm with 11 offices throughout Peru. The firm’s labour and social security lawyers advise clients on a wide range of labour matters, including contract and salary planning, due diligence, occupational health and safety, labour brokering and outsourcing, court proceedings, inspection procedures and claims brought against the Social Security Health Institute (EsSALUD), collective bargaining, as well as the hiring of foreign employees and the steps required to obtain the applicable work permits.

“We are excited about adding Peru to our deep Latin America regional line-up, which already includes Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico,” said John Sander, Chairman of L&E Global and co-leader of the International Employment Issues practice group at Jackson Lewis P.C. “Joining forces with Estudio Muñiz will broaden L&E Global’s access to expert legal advice for employers in a region that is particularly important to our transnational clients.”

“Becoming a member of L&E Global enables us to both attract new international clients and increase our existing client base,” said Ricardo Herrera, Principal Partner and Head of the labour and social security law practice at Estudio Muñiz.

“As L&E Global’s exclusive member firm in Peru, we anticipate playing a leading role in the legal market, both in Peru and Latin America,” added César Puntriano, Principal Partner at Estudio Muñiz.

“Estudio Muñiz is one of the foremost commercial and business law firms in Peru,” said Jeroen Douwes, Executive Director of L&E Global. “Therefore, it is an honour and a privilege to welcome this fine group of employment law specialists to the L&E Global alliance.”
