Myra S. Montecalvo-Quilatan

At the helm of the ACCRALAW Davao Branch is Myra S. Montecalvo-Quilatan.

Myra is a Partner and currently heads the team of 8 lawyers of the Firm’s Davao Branch strategically located in Mindanao. Myra became a Partner in 2016 and despite her brief exposure to the intricacies of law firm administration, by 2023, she was designated as Branch Head.

She best describes her career growth in ACCRALAW as challenging and fulfilling. She started in ACCRALAW with a general interest in litigation. She was part of the team that successfully defended the directors of a BPO company in a resulting criminal action in connection with a mall fire incident in Davao City. She also assisted an export-oriented business in securing a favorable construction arbitral award.

She, however, expanded her practice to include corporate and special projects due to her exposure and training in this field during her training in the Head Office. Through the years, the corporate matters and special projects handled by the Davao Branch have grown. She considers the land acquisitions by the Philippines’ “seat of technological education excellence” for its first school campus in Mindanao and by a multinational manufacturing company for the expansion of its bottling plant among her significant deals. Among her high value projects is the due diligence for the acquisition of a controlling interest in a group of food production companies.
On ACCRALAW’s 52nd year anniversary, she hopes that ACCRALAW will continue to attract the brightest minds among the youthful law graduates and mentor them to become successful, focused, and ethical leaders in their fields.

She is a dedicated wife to Sherwin, also a lawyer and is a legal counsel of a power distribution company, and mother to 3 beautiful children.
