Our greatest resource is our legal staff – experienced practitioners who lead in their respective fields. They are supported by strong administrative systems and staff.

Our practise covers all fields of law. The broad range of our expertise is reflected in our client base, which includes top local and foreign corporations, international organizations and governments.

The firm’s professional history has always tracked emergent legal issues engendered by developments and shifts in Philippine business and society, and by global changes and trends. From legal issues that arose during the formative years of our Republic to the restructuring of the Philippine external debt, from the advent of power projects to questions of cyberlaw, we have been, and remain, at the cutting edge of legal practice.

With more than half a century of collective experience and resources and a continuing drive to innovate, our firm combines traditions of professional integrity and excellence with a time-tested ability to break new ground.
