As the second largest nation in the Caribbean and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region, air and sea transportation is of vital importance to the Dominican Republic and the businesses that operate here. Castillo y Castillo’s long tradition of advising the aviation and maritime industries reflects the significance of this sector to the economy.
Both passenger and freight carriers turn to us for advice on general aviation transactions including regulatory advice, licensing and public policy. We also advise on the specific commercial issues that arise in the airline business, including aircraft finance, registration, establishment, passenger and cargo claims and litigation.
Our maritime practice encompasses drafting and negotiating contracts of affreightment, charter parties, bills of lading, cargo damage and other shipping agreements and disputes.
