- Why JCP?

After only a decade on the market, Jiménez Cruz Peña became one of the Dominican Republic's largest international law firms. We are equipped with veteran talent and all the resources to handle any legal challenge a local and global business community may face in the Dominican Republic. Our closely- knit, internationally trained legal team provides innovative business solutions that frequently exceed our clients’ expectations.

At JCP, we treat all our clients as our business partners. We integrate them in the process, working as a team to achieve a common goal. Their projects become our own, and our attorneys work tirelessly around the clock to bring value to our clients’ bottom line.

Because of our dedication to integrity, responsiveness and professional excellence, we have achieved a status of go-to counsel in many crucial for business areas, such as corporate transactions, project finance, tax, labor, and government relations. A pioneer of the international arbitration in the Dominican Republic, JCP regularly acts in cases before leading arbitration institutions, both as local and lead counsel.

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


Our strength is our legal talent. JCP partners offer decades of experience and insight gained practicing in an emerging market that cannot be gleaned from a textbook or from handling a couple of deals. They pass their sound business judgment to the associates, who combine it with their world-class legal education to excel in their field.

We pride ourselves to serve as a trusted ally in the Dominican Republic for clients from all over the world. We have formed alliances with independent practitioners in separate firms, who bring a diverse experience to a variety of matters. We have created a network of time-tested professionals in tax, accounting, construction, and other areas, who we can seamlessly integrate into a problem-solving process. When our clients’ projects take them outside the country, we use a handpicked selection of local firms, with whom we foster strong business relationships.


Each client’s matter at JCP receives its own dedicated legal team, led by a senior partner in the most cost-efficient way. We make it a priority to communicate clearly and effectively with our clients and address their every need. We let our clients choose a fee arrangement that best meets our clients’ unique objectives, be it a traditional hourly billing, flat rate, or an alternative approach. We have found that, more often than not, flexibility and creativity in our client relationships benefit both us and our clients.

Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, international organizations, foreign and domestic leading financial institutions, private investment funds, individual investors, and governmental entities, among others. Many of our clients have been with us from JCP’s foundation; many came to us on recommendation from existing clients.


We measure our success by our clients’ satisfaction with our services. We do not take our success for granted and always look for ways to bring our services to the next level. That is why we make it a priority to be available to our clients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, cognizant of the big difference a timely action based on our advice can make.


Our legal team is equipped with seasoned, internationally recognized legal talent. The firm and its lawyers are top ranked in Chambers Global; Chambers Latin America; The Legal 500 Latin America; ILFR 1000 and Who Is Who Legal. Our partners are listed in one or more of these third party publications.

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