ISFIN partners with Pellerano & Herrera, N°1 in Dominican Republic
Pellerano & Herrera consolidates its practice in Foreign Investment, M&A, Finance and Capital Markets and Private Wealth.
ISFIN has teamed up with Pellerano & Herrera as exclusive representatives for the Dominican Republic. The firm is considered the leading law firm in the Dominican Republic for over 25 years.
Prof. Laurent Marliere, CEO of ISFIN says “ISFIN is delighted to welcome Pellerano & Herrera as the exclusive partner firm for the Dominican Republic. The firm’s multidisciplinary team of lawyers is recognised as the most comprehensive and sophisticated in the market, seeking to provide its clients legal solutions in all areas of business.
The Dominican Republic’s 4-5% expected GDP growth, the Foreign Direct Investment open policy as well as the government's will to separate its dependence towards the USA makes the Dominican Republic an attractive country for foreign and Islamic investors” adds Marliere.
Pellerano & Herrera has acted as advisor in more large and complex transactions and cases than any other Dominican law firm in all the important business sectors of the country.
The firm has represented parties in virtually all of the country’s major business transactions and projects and it regularly provides advice to prominent international companies and entities that are interested in beginning to do business in the Dominican Republic, and to those that are already operating in the country.
Pellerano & Herrera also has one of the strongest and most successful litigation and dispute resolution practices in the country, with extensive experience in sophisticated civil and commercial lawsuits, civil rights actions, and issues of constitutional law, contract disputes, and alternative dispute resolution.
Isfin Partner Luis R. Pellerano says: “As for the developments and potential of foreign Islamic investments in the Dominican Republic, there are opportunities in the energy and infrastructure sectors, as well as in capital markets. Tourism and air traffic should also be viewed as sectors with high potential when considering investing in the country. Foreign and local investors receive the same treatment and tax incentives (when available), regardless of their nationality” says Luis R. Pellerano.
