``THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE AND BUSINESS ARE OURS``

EDUARDO GÁLVEZ MONTEAGUDO

Business law, financial law, and capital markets law
Eduardo Galvez Monteagudo obtained his law degree from the Pontifica Universidad Catolica del Peru at 21 years old.  Throughout over 45 years of experience as a specialist in business law, financial and capital markets law, he stood out for his unbeatable character and his drive to be always at the forefront of the industry.  He has an international career in Peru, United States, England, Venezuela among various countries around the globe.

At the beginning of the 90’s, he decided to open his own Law Firm in Lima.  In the second half of the decade, it was easier to ask “Who were not clients in Peru of Estudio Galvez Monteagudo” than to ask about our clientele in the areas of judicial and extrajudicial debt recovery and in judicial representation.

 

The firm became a virtual “Bank of Recovery and Judicial Processes” providing it with a business structure and a database when at that time it was a “heresy” for a law firm to be run as a company. He crushed the anachronism that law firms should only be “professional service providers” without being responsible for the fate of their clients and even their adversaries.

 

Small and large companies and people from all social classes perceived that the study was a partner in their goals and not a simple legal advisor.

 

This paradigm shift was not an easy task or without resistance in all sectors. It forced the industry to transform all the relationships that were established, not only with clients, but with parties that came into conflict with them, but also with the State, accustomed to the lawyer being an ally in their ways of acting and timeframes.  The Firm erased the concept of the lawyer as a complacent professional of the status and processor with already established rites and played an executive, independent, questioning, and leading role.

INTERVIEW

In retrospective, what is it that makes you proud of these 45 years?

I perceive the verve, the strength, the freshness with which I graduated from the Catholic University at the age of 21, are still palpitating.  It helped a lot that I worked abroad for several years, in the United States, Venezuela, the United Kingdom and Colombia, which put my professional vision to the test in other latitudes and with different mentalities.

 

I have always perceived the legal profession as an olympically transparent business, whose objective should be that everyone wins and not only the client himself and where no one is allowed to ·demonise· the meaning of this professional business.

 

This business must not only be transparent, but also have clear rules for everyone, clean for the client and the adversary and also for the outside world and where the lawyer gets in the clients ‘shoes and competes with them, in an effort to know who defends it more.

What excites you about the next 20 years? What bothers you about the future of legal practice?

It excites me that the law industry becomes transparent to the whole of society and to the market and to abandon that widespread feeling that lawyers make simple things more complex.  The lawyer must simplify life for people and companies, preventing their stumbling blocks and acting with agility and readiness to avoid them.  I hope that the profession meets the expectations and needs of people and companies in a world where technology changes scenarios with unusual speed.

 

For this lawyers must never renounce to their duty of promoting change and must not consent to live behind it.

 

It concerns me that lawyers are not up to the responsibility that professional life imposes on us and that many times forces us to “fight against the current” “against everything and everyone”, that they resign themselves to being pacifiers and contemplative being of the status.

 

They must be aware that times are no longer a question form, but a living part of the solutions.  What is today, tomorrow will not be the same, so the pressure of the times forces the lawyer to be transversal in knowledge and know about finance, economics, technology and politics, so that he can be an actor in the changes and not a silent follower of these.
