Pellerano & Herrera:
Since 1952, when our firm began, Pellerano & Herrera has participated in the most important business and legal milestones in the Dominican Republic. Our pioneering and innovative nature is a direct result of the vitality and dynamism that characterizes our corporate DNA.
The original charters of many prominent Dominican and international companies have been drafted in our firm. Not only were leading companies created here, but for half a century we have been the cradle of different industries that remain vigorous today.
Our team also has served as counsel in the largest purchases and sales, international commerce deals, and foreign investment transactions that ever have taken place in the history of the Dominican Republic.
Throughout our institutional life, we always have been at the forefront of legal, technological, and entrepreneurial matters, without our team of lawyers and advisers losing sight of the principal beneficiaries of our work: our clients.
