Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution


At Guzmán Ariza, we have a large team of lawyers with extensive litigation experience to handle all disputes our clients may find themselves involved in before local courts, once all negotiations and alternative solutions have been explored, expended or discarded.  Our litigation team has a reputation for fast and cost-effective service and for exploring and providing helpful strategies to better reach the client’s goals in a litigation scenario.

We also believe that Alternative Dispute Resolution is a very important part of our law practice and we counsel our clients on procedural issues and negotiation strategies to enable them to achieve the best results, whether within the dispute process or through negotiation tactics and settlements.  Our firm handles all types of alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation, international or local arbitration, and other processes that may be specified by specific local laws on the matter.

Attorneys in our law firm have also served extensively as experts in litigation involving the application of Dominican law in foreign jurisdictions. Our name partner, Fabio J. Ariza, has submitted numerous affidavits and opinions on Dominican law to courts in the United States and Europe, and has served as an expert witness on Dominican Law before courts in the United States.
