The Firm also has an impressive network of correspondent firms positioned in the primary business centers of the world. The Firm’s strong presence in the Philippines, coupled with its international experience, makes it truly distinct in the Philippines.
Perhaps more than any other law firm in the Philippines, the Firm has trained and produced an impressive list of top tier government officials including, among others, three Executive Secretaries, two Senate Presidents, six Senators, several Congressmen, two SEC Chairpersons, and a BIR Commissioner. The Firm’s Partners have also been instrumental in providing invaluable resource persons to government agencies and assisting in the drafting of crucial legislation, rules and regulations.
The economy of the Philippines, together with the rest of Asia, is growing at an unprecedented rate. Moreover, financial centers and fortunes are shifting towards this region where there is a burgeoning, young, upwardly mobile and educated population with increasing disposable income. In the face of all this growth and economic activity, ACCRALAW is strategically and uniquely situated to serve its clients within the region and without.
