Corporate and finance - ranked: tier 2

Jiménez Cruz Peña

Noted for its excellent strength in depth, Jiménez Cruz Peña fields several partners who between them handle cross-border M&A, corporate and financial restructuring, governance and compliance matters, and financing mandates – particularly on the lender side. Recnet mandates saw Luis Jiménez and Vilma Veras assist CCS Holding Group obtaining a $3m concession for a food-and-beverages company to operate in a cruise harbour in Puerto Plata. The team is also active in fund structuring: Katherine Rosa acted for Advanced Asset Management on the structuring and implementation of its first investment fund, worth DOP2.5bn. Marcos Peña is also noted, especially for real estate M&A and project finance. Other clients include Celuisma and General Energy Solutions.

Dispute resolution
Dispute resolution - ranked: tier 1

Jiménez Cruz Peña

Jiménez Cruz Peña’s contentious practice is led jointly by labour litigator Rosa Díaz and international arbitrator Marcos Peña. Domestic and international private and state-owned companies instruct the team on a range of disputes, particularly in real estate and tourism; regulated sectors such as energy and telecoms are also a core strength. In the commercial litigation space, José Cruz acted for Baterías Dominicanas in a $900,000 case regarding the wrongful termination of a distribution agreement, as well as defending EnviroGold against a $1.5m claim brought by a local subcontractor regarding work done on the Las Lagunas project. American Airlines, Bellón and the Washington Nationals are also clients. Additional areas of activity, recently, include sports arbitration, investment arbitration, contentious insurance claims and criminal defamation.
