Internationally, we also submit articles to renowned publications such as the South Florida Legal Guide and the Metropolitan Corporate Counsel on topics of interest to investors and in-house company lawyers with an interest in doing business in the Dominican Republic.

The firm also participates in renowned publications and surveys such as Getting the Deal Through, Doing Business in and Child & Youth Finance International, where we are listed as representatives for the Dominican Republic.
