Sidley lawyers have been working on complex transactions involving the Philippines for many years. It is an important part of the firm’s Southeast Asia practice. The lawyers in our Hong Kong and Singapore offices collaborate closely with colleagues across the firm, including the United States and United Kingdom, to meet the regional and international cross-border transaction needs of Philippine-based clients and companies that have operations in the Philippines.
“Acts for a standout client base of high-end domestic and international corporates.”

Our lawyers are familiar with conducting business transactions involving entities in the Philippines. Several of our lawyers initially qualified and practiced in the Philippines and are fluent in Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines.
We have worked on a wide range of matters involving the Philippines, particularly on issues related to capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, compliance and investigations, and dispute resolution. The firm is also actively involved in establishing dedicated Philippine-focused private equity investment funds and other alternative investment fund arrangements. In circumstances where local law advice is required, we work with leading domestic counsel, many of whom are leaders in their fields.
