We are a law office engaged in
general practice with principal office located in Makati City,
Philippines. On the one hand, we act as counsel to our clients
in any proceeding; on the other, we also work as a research and
consulting company, purveying all sorts of information and opinions
on any question of law, politics and related subjects. Our field
of practice ranges from construction arbitration to litigation
in the regular courts and quasi-judicial bodies.

We also handle judicial and extra-judicial
foreclosure of chattel and real estate mortgages, in which our

In quasi-judicial bodies, we

stockholders before the Securities and Exchange Commission. The
Department of Justice, the Ombudsman, the Toll Regulatory Board

in criminal cases but this field of practice is only peripheral
