Medina Garnes Abogados (MGA) is a boutique law firm founded in the Dominican Republic by Fabiola Medina in 2004, under the name Medina Garnes Asociados. Since then, the firm has gained extensive experience assisting clients in legal matters in the areas of telecommunications, administrative law, tax law, litigation and alternative dispute resolution. Additionally, in recent years, and following a careful and sustainable growth strategy, MGA has managed to expand its practice into new areas of law including all corporate and financial matters, mergers & acquisitions, contracts, regulated markets, real estate, employment, economic and criminal law and energy, developing a broader and more comprehensive legal practice, with an emphasis on providing services with the highest quality standards, efficiently, and focused on solutions.

MGA has the distinction of having become one of the most outstanding law firms in the Dominican Republic, a recognition that has resulted from an extraordinary professional practice, marked by great achievements in many relevant cases, for clients from the private and public sectors. The firm has also stood out for its constant and exceptional participation in recent and important legislative processes tending to the creation and reform of key regulations, which has provided its lawyers with a unique perspective on the functioning of the Dominican regulatory system and its effects on business activities and transactions. However, the most significant accolade for MGA is the continued trust of its clients.

The firm offers a wide range of legal teams made up of specialists in different areas of law. The experience gained by our lawyers enables MGA to handle complex matters through a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach that draws from all relevant sources within MGA which, while minimizing costs, provides its clients with efficient legal solutions designed to maximize the identification and management of all potential risks in national and multijurisdictional transactions.
