“Our lawyers are selected from top law schools in the country, graduating at the top of their class, several of whom are also certified public accountants and trained arbitrators,” Guirnalda said.

“We continuously nurture and hone our lawyers’ talents by providing them with opportunities for specialized training and education both locally and abroad.”

For consistently providing prompt and practical legal advice on a cost-effective basis, SPCMB has received recognition from several international bodies.

In the past two years, SPCMB was recognized by The Legal 500 as one of the top-tier law firms in the Asia-Pacific region in seven areas, namely:

  • Projects and Energy
  • Tax
  • Technology, Media and Telecoms
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Corporate and M&A
  • Banking and Finance
  • Labor and Employment

Benchmark Litigation, a definitive guide to the world’s leading litigation firms and attorneys, also ranked SPCMB as a notable firm for commercial transactions and dispute resolution.

“We are happy to be recognized by highly reputable global organizations for the quality of services we provide our clients as these awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our lawyers,” said Jennifer Ong, head of SPCMB’s Corporate and Special Projects Department.

SPCMB has extensive experience in incorporating corporations and registering securities with the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission for local and foreign investors, as well as providing legal management and corporate housekeeping services for private and publicly listed corporations.

The firm has also acted as lead counsel for accounts that involved:

  • the simultaneous listing of a company on both the Philippine Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange of Australia.
  • the backdoor listing of two companies on the PSE.
  • foreign investments in Philippine companies amounting to more than $100 million.
  • domestic companies investing in foreign companies with total investment price of more than $50 million.
  • several public-private partnerships (PPP), with the aggregate value of the contracts amounting to around $4 billion, including an intracity subway project, the Makati Life Medical Center, and the country’s first Pambansang Pabahay Para sa Pilipino (4PH) Program (a national housing project) of the Department of Human Settlement and Urban Development in Bacolod City.

Recently, the PPP framework for the Makati Life Medical Center won the Public-Private Healthcare Partnership of the Year Award in the Philippines at the Healthcare Asia Awards 2022 for its promising construction projections and its vision of becoming a globally recognized health care collaboration between the local government and the private sector.

Equally recognized is the litigation and dispute resolution department of SPCMB for its handling of complex and significant civil, criminal, special proceedings, tax and election cases at all administrative and court levels.

In conclusion, Guirnalda said, “We strive to prevent the costs, delay and aggravation associated with litigation, though admittedly unavoidable at times, to protect the clients’ interests.”
