During these 60 years, Pellerano & Herrera has maintained a continuous growth that has positioned the firm as one of the leading institutions in the Dominican legal market. The firm has been recognized by the prominent British research publisher, Chambers & Partners, as "Firm of the Year in Dominican Republic" in 2009, 2010 and 2011, being the only Dominican law firm that has received this award, the most prestigious in the legal area.
