The Firm was organized on 1 June 2010 by Partners having between them solid law practice of four decades. They came from varied law and business engagements. They are committed to uphold the nobility of the legal profession as they have been taught to practice law in the grand manner, and their now 10-year experience as Law Firm is testament to that commitment.
The Partners all graduated from the College of Law, University of the Philippines.
Over the past 10 years, the Firm has drawn a respectable number of local and foreign clients, which are large and established corporations and mid-sized companies, including non-profit organizations. Notably, the clients of the Firm are engaged in real estate development, logistics, IT, public utility services, education and hospital and healthcare.
A Managing Partner, assisted by a Partner for Administration, directs and supervises the over-all activities and operations of the Firm.
The Firm operates under a team system of at least two lawyers, chosen for their expertise in the particular requirements of the cases and projects. To assure clients ready access to lawyer services, they may call on any Partner of the Firm for any exigency. The Firm is retainer-based and a monthly fee is fixed under a retainer agreement with each client. In addition to consultancy services, the retainer agreement allows clients’ electing lawyers of the Firm to be corporate secretary or member of their board of directors. For services not covered by the retainer, such as representation and assistance in clients’ extensive contract negotiations, extended legal research, documentation or those requiring litigation, arbitration or appearances before judicial, quasi-judicial, legislative or administrative tribunals, a professional fee is charged under separate engagement contract. Billings are based principally on the time involvement of all the lawyers assigned to the case or project.
