The boutique law firm of Zuzunaga, Assereto & Zegarra Abogado has a tax team comprised of five partners, two directors, and 11 associates. The department’s main areas of practice include consulting, litigation and tax arbitration, corporate tax, tax planning, and International trade and customs.
The firm has been supporting clients across Peru’s most regulated industries. The team supported Cumbres Andinas, a subsidiary of the Peruvian mining company, in concluding stability agreements with the Peruvian State. The firm was employed to protect their investment in the Mina Justa mining project in 2016. These contracts created a freeze in various tax regimes which ensured a better rate of return for the project. Since then, Cumbres Andinas has become a regular client of the firm. The group continues to counsel it in all matters concerned with its contract, as well as its tax implications.
In January of 2021 Partner Sergio Vega-León Cabreraleft the firm to join Deloitte Peru.
