GUZMÁN & MOLINA, Abogados (“GMA”) stands for effective and efficient service. It’s a law firm founded in 2018 and based in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It is made up of a proactive multilingual staff with a combined vision of how to do business and deal with contentious situations in any commercial activity. The firm is prepared to react diligently to conflict, either to prevent it or to defend rights, not only at the local level but specially with an international perspective.

We are part of “IR Global”, a professional network based in England that allow us to access and offer legal and financial services in more than 155 jurisdictions worldwide, being its exclusive representative in Dominican territory in the commercial arbitration field. In addition to Santo Domingo, GMA has a presence, through correspondents, in the most important cities of the country, such as Punta Cana, Las Terrenas, Santiago, La Vega, Baní and San Pedro de Macorís. GMA has been recognized by “Chambers & Partners” and “The Legal 500” as a leading firm in the dispute resolution practice in the Dominican Republic.

GMA knows how to harmonize its natural corporate philosophy with a fine personalized handling by combining biological youth with solid professional and academic experience. Our partners have extensive skill in the public sector, in renowned companies, in national and international firms, and in the academy. GMA has left its mark on Dominican jurisprudence by participating in complex cases that have contributed to setting landmark precedents.

Diversity and creativity are substantial parts of our vision. This diversity includes not only the human resources made available to clients, but also the impressive breadth of the industries in which they operate. The firm dominates the traditional areas of law and makes its way by constantly updating itself in the new legal trends of the county and the world. Another interesting mix that is of the essence of GMA is the symbiosis of depth and practicality when drawing and implementing strategies. GMA is characterized by a shrewd instinct in attention to detail and is responsible for understanding the industries of its clients, so that we may both speak the same language.

Another element that particularly highlights GMA is its flexibility in fee arrangements, as we are aware of the importance of offering a cost-efficient legal service. Furthermore, GMA is governed by the strictest ethical standards and its efforts are aimed at fully satisfying the interest of its clients. For GMA, client service is not an accessory issue, rather a core aspect of its work dynamic.

For us, the reputation and information that we handle from our clients are treated with the severest confidentiality. GMA offers solutions with a multidisciplinary perspective, since it knows that legal remedies need to be transversally complemented with other sciences. GMA knows the peculiarities of the judicial systems and of the public and private institutions in which it interacts, and that is why we are not apart from what is happening in the legal environment; to the contrary, we constantly watch it.

In short, GMA defends rights vigorously and explore all possible alternatives to correct or prevent risks. The firm will do everything in its power to safeguard interests in a proactive and deontologically flawless style. Its general practice has a strong inclination for litigation and contractual art. Therefore, GMA concentrates two major service axes: contentious and transactional, both in a business and a personal approach.
