Sidley lawyers have been working on complex business transactions for our clients involving entities in the Philippines for many years. As an important part of the firm’s Southeast Asia practice, our lawyers in Hong Kong and Singapore collaborate closely with colleagues across the firm, including the United States and United Kingdom, to meet the regional and international cross-border transactional needs of Philippine-based clients, as well as companies that have operations in the Philippines.
“Acts for a standout client base of high-end domestic and international corporates.”
– Chambers Asia-Pacific 2018: Philippines, Corporate & Finance
We have worked on a wide range of matters involving the Philippines, particularly on issues related to capital markets, M&A, corporate finance, compliance and investigations, and dispute resolution, among others. 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.
