María Teresa Quiñones Alayza

I started my career as a lawyer in the 1990s. When I finished my Master of Law (LL.M.) degree at Harvard University, I was the first woman hired by a major law firm in Peru.

At this firm, I was able to transfer everything that I had learned in Economic Administrative Law, Public Private Partnerships, and Regulation of Public Services and Infrastructure, with special emphasis on energy, sanitation, transportation, and telecommunications and infrastructure facilities.

In 2018, I decided to build a young and passionate team of lawyers and start my own firm: QA Legal, a firm with a modern approach and innovative solutions, where strategic analysis and applied research prevail.

Through QA Legal, and through the association Women in the Profession, to which I belong to since 2016, we promote the visibility, leadership, and possibilities of female lawyers.

I have been a university professor for many years, and I regularly do research and publish academic articles in various specialized magazines at the domestic and international level.
