Overview

Ámbar has served both as outside and in-house counsel of organizations in different branches of law. As a litigation attorney, she has managed cases in all areas, but primarily labor, civil, commercial, and real estate law matters. She has also ventured into alternative dispute resolutions, such as mediation, arbitration and negotiation.  Throughout her professional career, Ámbar has worked in the litigation, corporate, business, and regulatory departments of law firms, and has been highly leveraged by companies in which she has worked in-house.

Ámbar has a special interest and passion for regulatory compliance and anti-money laundering issues, and has been actively involved through membership in professional associations.  This has allowed her to work on different projects involving the review, amendment and study of laws, regulations, and regulatory manuals governing these topics.

She teaches workshops, certification courses, and training programs on different legal topics, and has been actively involved as judge and advisor in international law competitions. She feels that supporting and properly training students and professionals in the Dominican Republic and other countries are among her most significant contributions to both the legal industry and society as a whole. She is a member of Asociación Nacional de Jóvenes Empresarios (ANJE) and the firm is a member of AMCHAMDR.
