Caro & Asociados


We are the first firm in Peru to have obtained both the ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management Systems and the ISO 37301 Compliance Management Systems certifications.


We are the first law firm in Peru to have obtained an ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System, certified by the prestigious American firm BASC PERU (Business Alliance for Secure Commerce).

The firm’s excellence, its commitment to good business practices and its commitment to innovation are the reasons why we became the first firm in Peru to obtain this certification.


We have also become the first Peruvian company with ISO 37301 Compliance Management Systems certification, issued by the prestigious American firm BASC PERU (Business Alliance for Secure Commerce). Our commitment to compliance as a leading firm in this area, together with our struggle to help building a better country, were key to the recognition awarded, which certifies the implementation in Caro & Asociados of an effective system of regulatory compliance. We believe in business integrity and for this reason, and within our philosophy of always being at the forefront of our main jurisdiction, we have established, in addition to the Anti-bribery and Compliance Management policies that have led us to obtain ISO 37001 and ISO 37301 respectively, a code of conduct and a code of ethics:
