Practice Areas


Arciniegas Abogados was created by forward-thinking attorneys, who strongly believe that the practice of law must keep up with current local and international trends and be modified to fit the needs of our most demanding clients.


Although Arciniegas Abogados has created a track record representing mostly international corporations and individual investors in the Dominican Republic, all our clients have in common a clear expectation of receiving quality legal services and responsive and transparent handling of their matters.

We are able to provide such quality legal services by counting on a skilled, multilingual staff of lawyers, Of Counsels, and paralegals with years of legal practice and knowledge of Dominican and foreign laws. Many of our Of Counsels have advanced degrees in different fields of the law earned in North America and Europe and come from a wide array of backgrounds such as former judges, former government officials, and foreign-trained lawyers.

Arciniegas Abogados has made of responsiveness and transparency towards our clients the hallmarks of our legal practice while adhering to strict rules of professional responsibility set by legal professional bodies, such as the Dominican Bar and the American Bar Association.


As a result, we have become a one-stop-shop for all the legal needs of our international clients: from the simple purchase of a vacation villa to complex commercial litigation and transactions involving offshore securities offerings and private placements or the structuring of joint ventures and partnerships.

We are confident that prospective clients will benefit, as are our current clients benefiting, from Arciniegas Abogados’ expertise in a breadth of areas of the law and a focus on specific industries with the purpose of responding to the most taxing legal issues facing international companies and individuals alike in the Dominican Republic.
