We have extensive experience in the Philippines through working with the Philippine government, government-owned and controlled corporations, banks and privately‑controlled corporations on debt and equity transactions throughout the past decade. This has given us an unparalleled track record, expertise and contacts in the market as well as a top tier ranking in directories.
Our involvement in almost all significant international capital markets transactions has made us the first-call international legal practice on Philippine capital markets deals. This gives us a clear advantage over other legal practices as the capital markets work drives the activity of international law firms in this country.
In the last four years, we have advised on over 70 international transactions in the Philippines involving the Republic, Government-owned enterprises, banks and corporate entities. We have worked on almost all of the recent international capital markets transactions involving the Republic, National Power Corporation (NPC) and Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM).
This work, as well as experience with other Philippine Government-owned and private corporations, has given us an in-depth understanding of Philippine legal, business and cultural practices, as well as specialist expertise to advise on a diverse range of transactions. Our leading practitioners have substantial experience with Philippine corporate issuers, having advised issuers and underwriters on over 20 of the region's most recent high profile international offerings of equity and debt securities.
We also have extensive experience advising on banking, M&A and arbitration matters.
