We have advised an increasing number of companies establishing operations in the Philippines. The range of our advice includes establishment of Philippine subsidiaries, establishment and operation of joint venture companies, M&A and financing involving Philippine corporations, resolution of disputes involving Philippine companies or Philippine matters, and withdrawal of business from the Philippines. Our work relating to the Philippines spans many industries, including the manufacturing, service, information technology, real estate, and energy sectors.

We have extensive practical experience handling transactions and matters relating to the Philippines. We have Philippine lawyers who were senior lawyers at leading Philippine law firms prior to joining our firm in the Tokyo Office, and we have seconded Japanese lawyers at leading Philippine law firms. We have a strong relationship with all the leading and boutique Philippine law firms. Therefore, partnering with lawyers in the Philippines, we are well equipped to assemble the proper team to handle legal matters of all types and scale relating to the Philippines.
