A new era for coexistence agreements

Progressive acceptance of coexistence agreements dates back to 2008. However, coexistence agreements are not automatically accepted in Peru and the parties’ intent to coexist is not always honoured. The acceptance of coexistence agreements remains far from straightforward. The first administrative instance is still reluctant to accept coexistence agreements unless the parties to the agreement are economically related. Thus, coexistence agreements dealing with unrelated parties have so far been accepted only on appeal.
