He is President of the Harvard University Club of Peru, President of the Harvard Law School Association of Peru, and member of the Board of Directors of Peru 2021. His family's law firm, Marroquin & Merino, was founded in 1945 by his grandfather, the late Victor Francisco Marroquin Andia, a respected Peruvian jurist and judge. Marroquin has received numerous accolades for his work, including the International Lawyer of the Year Award in 1994 from the University of Miami and the Best Lawyer Peru Award in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 from World Finance (London). Under Marroquin's leadership, Marroquin & Merino has been listed twice in the World Finance 100, and has won the World Finance award for Best M&A Firm in Peru for five consecutive years.



Victor Marroquin was born in Lima, on February 10, 1962, the son of Victor Santiago Marroquin Rubio (1930-2015), a decorated Peruvian Air Force officer, and Isabel Merino Deza (1933-), a philanthropist. He attended Peru's Catholic School, the Colegio Sagrados Corazones Recoleta, the "Escuela Naval del Peru" Peruvian Naval School and the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru. He received his Juris Doctor degree with honors from the University of Miami, where he was Editor-in-Chief of the International and Comparative Law Review, and his Master of Laws degree magna cum laude from Harvard Law School.

Afterwards, Marroquin was invited to join the Legal Department of the International Monetary Fund in Washington D.C., where he worked on various international projects involving legal and financial issues in Europe and Latin America. Following his work at the International Monetary Fund, Marroquin joined Baker & McKenzie as a member of its Latin America Practice Group. He was resident in Chicago, where, in addition to his involvement in other major projects and transactions, he acted as the project leader of the team that represented the Peruvian Government in the privatization of the country's airports, ports, railroads, and energy facilities. This included the granting of a master concession for Lima's Jorge Chavez International Airport, the BOOT contract for Peru's main electricity transmission line, and the master concessions for the license, exploitation, transportation, and distribution of hydrocarbons from the Camisea Gas Project, one of the world's largest deposits of natural gas.
