Our Firm

Since 1965, Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano Abogados has been at the forefront of the Peruvian legal market, always accompanying our clients as a strategic partner. Our main objective as a law firm is to provide creative and timely solutions adding value to our clients.

We are proud to have participated in the most relevant projects for the development of the country throughout these five decades of professional practice.

SOCIAL COMMITMENT

We are aware of our responsibility as corporate citizens, as well as of the need to use our resources in a supporting way. We strive to contribute to society through teaching and pro-bono activities, giving priority to professional service to people in need in fair cases or matters.

We also provide financial support to outstanding students with scarce resources through the Luis Carlos Rodrigo Mazuré scholarships.

Our Ethics

We are committed to providing quality service and excellence. We act with honesty, ethics, trustworthiness and justice when practicing our profession. We are always within the framework of respect for the law and adherence to the highest ethical and trustworthiness standards, and in strict compliance with the provisions of the Attorneys’ Code of Ethics.

We are inflexible, above all, in the compliance with all anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing laws, regulation and provisions.

Pro Bono

Our team offers free legal advice (pro bono) to individuals, non-profit associations, national and international NGO’s, and universities on issues with positive impact on society.

Throughout our work we have obtained several national and international recognitions. Some of the most recent are:

  • Law Firm: Pro Bono Leading Light in 2016, 2017 and 2018 by Latin Lawyer and Vance Center.
  • Cases: The Fair Trials International (UK NGO) Project was nominated for the TrustLaw Awards 2018 (*TrustLaw is the Thomson Reuters’ pro bono legal program).
  • Our work: Prepare the Peruvian section of a report on the legal treatment in ten Latin American countries of the Right to a Fair Criminal Trial.

Other interesting cases we have participated in the last years are:

  • We carried out a detailed analysis of the Peruvian legislation as part of the project “A Child’s Right to Be Forgotten,” developed by the Osgoode Hall Law School of York University (Canada). This analysis was related to the protection of the right to the image and to be forgotten of a Peruvian woman who became pregnant being a child decades ago. We presented the results at the School of Law in Toronto.
  • We contributed with Thomson Reuters in the preparation of a widely spread report on the criminal defamation to silence journalists criticizing governments throughout the Americas.
  • We analyzed for Instiglio –an American-based NGO with headquarters in Colombia– the legal feasibility of implementing social-impact bonds in Peru.
  • We helped the American NGO All Hands Volunteers with contractual and banking issues related to the reconstruction of schools destroyed by El Niño phenomenon in the northern part of the country.
  • We gave talks to micro-entrepreneurs of the local market about the requirements, advantages and challenges to formalize their businesses.
  • We assist the Wiese Foundation in a program that will benefit low-income cancer patients.

OUR FOUNDERS

Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano Abogados was conceived to be a standard-bearer in the market.

Our founding partners: Luis Carlos Rodrigo Mazuré, Enrique Elías Laroza (+) and Humberto Medrano Cornejo were pioneers in the modernization of the legal profession in Peru. Their vision was to build a firm that would go beyond the family relationship of its members, giving all their attorneys the opportunity to become partners of the firm.

We are proud to be the first Peruvian firm to ‘democratize’ the partnership access, as well as to invest in technology to provide the best service to our clients. They, through their requests set the course of our practice.

Today, hand in hand with our partners and associates, we build every day a leading firm institution being at the forefront with its own identity, in order to last over time regardless of who we are today.
