Our firm has been involved in strategic transactions from its very inception. On the day the firm first opened its doors, the firm was immediately engaged to undertake the sale of a major restaurant chain in the Philippines which was eventually publicly listed.
The reputation of the firm for its skill in handling mergers and acquisitions is largely due to its multi-specialist foundation. In every transaction, our firm was able to bring to the negotiating table its skills in tax, corporate, labor and environmental law. We are committed to a comprehensive approach that will structure the deal in a manner most beneficial to the client. Thus, in creating a team for any strategic transaction, we ensure that all specializations are in place to ensure that in concluding the transaction every legal feature is covered for the maximum benefit and protection of our client.
Our work on all strategic transactions is supported by the firm’s ability to secure all necessary government approvals and to do post-transaction work inclusive of all legal compliance requirements and assisting the client through the transition stage and dealing with all consequences of the business deal. In all strategic transactions, we meticulously assist our clients in legal risk assessment, liability management, business organization structure and corporate finance, environmental compliance, and structuring the financial aspects of the transaction.
