Why JP?

EXPERIENCE. Unifying our experiences makes us more

The consolidated knowledge of our team, closely united and with international training, allows us to offer solutions that anticipate and satisfy the needs of our clients.

Established in 2003, Jiménez Peña is one of the largest international law firms in the Dominican Republic. We have veteran talent and all the necessary resources to handle any legal challenge that a local and global business community may face in the Dominican Republic.

JP’s partners offer decades of experience and knowledge gained through practice in an emerging market that cannot be obtained from a textbook or from handling a few cases. They pass on their good business judgment to associates, who combine it with their high-level legal education to excel in their field.

The firm and its lawyers have received a high ranking on Chambers Global; Chambers Latin America; The Legal 500 Latin America; ILFR 1000, Latin Lawyer 250 and Who’s Who Legal. Our partners and associates appear in one or more of these publications of great international prestige.

JP has been selected by TRACE International as TRACE’s Partner Firm in the Dominican Republic, for its valuable experience in anti-bribery laws and regulations for the benefit of TRACE’s multinational members and intermediaries.

CREATIVITY. Think different as a goal

We believe in building innovative options that lead our clients to carry out their projects successfully. We grow in knowledge, but above all in diversity and vision of the future.

At JP we treat our clients as our business partners. We integrate them into the process, working as a team to achieve a common goal. Their projects become ours and we measure our success based on the satisfaction of their needs. We do not take our success for granted and are always looking for ways to improve our services. That is why we make it a priority to be available to our clients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, aware of the great difference that acting on time based on our advice can make.

Every case at JP has a dedicated legal team led by a senior partner in the most cost-effective manner. Our priority is to communicate with our clients in a clear and effective way and attend to each of their needs, letting them choose the fee plan that best suits their particular objectives; flexibility and creativity in relationships with our clients benefit both us and them.

We pride ourselves on working as trusted partners in the Dominican Republic for clients around the world. We have formed an alliance with independent professionals from other firms, who bring diverse experiences in a variety of topics. We have created a network of proven professionals in tax, accounting, construction, and other areas who can easily be integrated into a problem-solving process. When our clients’ projects take them out of the country, we use carefully selected local firms, with whom we maintain strong business relationships.

RESULTS. Get to the finish line well and on time

As advisors, we work effectively to turn any difficulty into an opportunity, focused on achieving the proposed goals

Because of our dedication to integrity, responsiveness, and professional excellence, we have become the expert lawyers to turn to in many areas critical to business, such as corporate transactions, project finance, tax, labor, and government relations. A pioneer of international arbitration in the Dominican Republic, JP regularly intervenes in cases before major arbitration institutions, both as local counsel and as lead counsel.

Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, international organizations, domestic and foreign financial institutions, private investment funds, individual investors, and government entities, among others. Many of our clients have been with us since the founding of JP; many come to us on the recommendation of other clients.

We are grateful for the community that has given us so much. We offer pro-bono support to NGOs dedicated to health, education and local chambers of commerce. We frequently participate in the drafting of fundamental legislation and contribute to professional publications.
