As former Director of the Office of Legislative Services of the Puerto Rican Legislative Assembly, Francisco Domenech has seen his fair share of bureaucratic battles. He was responsible for managing 130 team members, expanded the services of the Legislative Library to be more inclusive of people with disabilities, and participated in over 800 pieces of legislation. His dedication and service led him to his appointment as Puerto Rico’s Senate President’s Chief Legal Counsel where he worked tirelessly to fight for the Senate’s rights. Needless to say, Domenech was a natural choice to serve as government affairs firm Politank’s managing partner where he is working to develop strategies to best represent private interests above political ones.
Domenech is a twice graduate of the University of Puerto Rico – Rió Piedras Campus where he earned his B.A. in Political Science, and his Juras Doctor. While at University, he served as Academic Senator for the Rió Piedras Campus, and President of the Student Body Counsel. During the 2016 Domenech served as Campaign Manager for Hon. Jennifer Gonzalez’ victorious bid to be Puerto Rico’s first female, and youngest Resident Commissioner. He also served on Hillary Clinton’s National Finance Committee where he assisted in organizing Mrs. Clinton’s campaign trip to Puerto Rico. Domenech also holds the distinction of being the awardee with the most votes in San Juan’s Class of 2016’s “40 Under 40” event, an annual selection of Puerto Rico’s top entrepreneurs.
Both individually, as well as with Politank, Francisco Domenech has championed various causes. Notable are The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, The Clinton Foundation, Museo de Arte de Ponce, the Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars, and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation. Mr. Domenech is currently admitted into practice before the courts of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. District Court of Puerto Rico, the Federal Circuit and the District of Columbia Circuit, the U.S. Court of International Trade and the U.S Supreme Court.
