Dispute resolution

Within: Dispute resolution

Full-service firm Guzmán Ariza began life as a dispute resolution boutique; real estate, civil, commercial and – thanks to of counsel Michel Camacho – white-collar crime litigation are core strengths of the team, which also has experience in arbitration. Fabio Guzmán Saladín and Alberto Reyes have been representing PAWA Dominicana in proceedings against the Dominican civil aviation authority, which suspended the airline’s operations, pushing it into bankruptcy. Contracts expert Reyes also defended JJH Capital in appeal proceedings in a real estate case brought by Juan José Hidalgo, who had bought a 1,236-acre Punta Cana property from the company. Tourism is a particular sector strength for the practice; Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Resort, Sunwing Travel Group and Club Med are all clients. Other key team members include practice head Fabio Guzmán Ariza, litigator Rhadaisis Espinal, and administrative and white-collar crime litigation expert Melissa Sosa, who joined the firm as special counsel from Martínez Sosa Jiménez in November 2017.
