Banking, Finance, Insurance and Capital Markets

Banking and Finance

Pellerano & Herrera advises commercial banks, international financial institutions, investment banks, stock exchange agents, and other financial institutions with respect to all of their legal needs.

The firm represents lenders and borrowers on a wide range of credit facilities, including syndicated loans, secured and unsecured lending, and project and acquisition financing.

We also provide assistance on regulatory and compliance issues for financial institutions. The firm represents international financial institutions interested in establishing branches and representative offices in the Dominican Republic.

Pellerano & Herrera’s structured finance team operates at the cutting edge of structured finance work, implementing complex transactions in structured products, securitizations, asset acquisitions, project finance, and tax-driven matters.

Insurance

Pellerano & Herrera has vast experience advising insurance clients on a broad range of subjects, including regulatory issues and the development of insurance-related financial products.

With respect to insurance disputes, our firm has an impeccable record and has played an important role in representing parties in many of the most significant cases and disputes in the Dominican Republic.

Capital Markets & Securities

Pellerano & Herrera has been involved on behalf of clients in most of the major transactions carried out to date locally and abroad relating to the developing Dominican securities market.

Our extensive knowledge of the consolidated regulation of the Dominican Securities Law and Trusts Law has allowed our attorneys to advise the country’s securities brokers about the practical effects and implications.

The firm’s corporate and finance lawyers handle equity securities, bonds, convertibles and other hybrid securities, project bonds, and asset-backed securities. Our lawyers have a unique expertise in the financing of syndicated loans and initial public offerings, as well as the issuance of securities in the local market, and international issuances under US Regulation S and Rule 144A.

In addition to major investment banks, Pellerano & Herrera also assists many governments and leading lending institutions from around the world.

The firm’s experience in this area involves representing clients in many industries, handling transactions in information technology and telecommunications, media and technology, energy, transportation, and manufacturing, among others.

The firm has represented Dominican companies and major investment banks in a range of public offerings in the international markets. For example, we have represented clients in an offering of bonds and shares on the New York Stock Exchange. We also have represented clients in issuances of Dominican Sovereign bonds, the latter for US$2.5 billion, which was the largest registered bond offering in the history of the Dominican Republic.
