Caro & Asociados is a boutique law firm with high specialisation in White Collar Crime. The firm is best known for its high rate of success in the defense of companies and their administrators in preliminary criminal investigation proceedings and trials before criminal courts. As a matter of fact, none of the firm's clients has ever been found guilty, let alone convicted, despite the high complexity of the subject matters involved or the great public media coverage of many of such cases.
The firm's excellence in proceedings, its devoted focus on compliance, engagement to good entrepreneurial practice and sight on innovation is the reason the firm was granted the ISO 37001 certification, which made it the only law firm to be awarded the BASC Peru certification within its anti-bribery program. Car & Asociados has kept the certification in force, improving its system in the prevention of private corruption and internal policies against labor.
