Biaggi assisted Promotora Puerto Bonito with the debt-and-equity restructuring of one of the largest tourism projects in the northeast of the country, and on the M&A side, advised Corporación de Crédito Nordestana de Préstamos and Corporación de Crédito Préstamos a las Ordenes on their $20m merger.

Biaggi Abogados

The ‘very professional’ team at Biaggi Abogados is ‘good value for money’; the ‘sharp, attentive’ Wanda Perdomo is the key contact, handling litigation and both domestic and international arbitration. Key support comes from practice head Edward Veras-Vargas, who merged his firm into the former Biaggi & Messina in 2015, and has particular experience in white-collar crime litigation; and name partner Gustavo Biaggi, whose caseload includes litigating for the Dominican state. He recently assisted it with the recovery of 645 million square-feet of public land allegedly in the wrongful possession of third parties. Other real-estate disputes clients include GGC Inversiones Inmobiliarias, Bretagne Holdings and Grupo Rodelsa. Energy is another busy disputes sector for the firm, with the team acting for clients including Puerto Plata de Electricidad and Grupo Terpel in litigious matters. Joan Manuel Alcántara left the firm in August 2016 upon his election as a congressional deputy.
