All of our Asia-based partners and senior lawyers have worked for more than a decade in the region, providing a full range of legal services to the world’s leading commercial, financial and industrial enterprises, as well as to institutions, individuals and governments. Milbank’s lawyers meet the needs of its clients by offering a highly integrated and collaborative range of services across key practice groups throughout its global network.
Milbank has one of the most highly active and successful Philippines practice within a global law firm. We bring global standard techniques and services to global and regional clients doing business in the Philippines.
Our broad range of experience has given us an in-depth understanding of Philippine legal, business and cultural practices, including regulatory issues relating to IPOs on the Philippine Stock Exchange, as well as specialist expertise to advise on a diverse range of other transactions. Our leading capital markets practitioners have substantial experience with Philippine issuers, having advised issuers and underwriters on some of the region’s most recent high profile IPOs and other international offerings of equity and debt securities. Moreover, both Chambers Asia Pacific and Legal 500 Asia Pacific have ranked this team as the leading foreign law firm in the Philippines for the past six years. Most recently Milbank was ranked as a Tier 1 foreign law firm in the Philippines by Legal 500 Asia Pacific, further recognizing our commitment to the Philippines and the quality of our practice.
The regulatory environment in the Philippines does not allow us to practice Philippine law. However, we often have teams of lawyers in the Philippines working on international transactions, and we have developed a strong understanding of regulatory issues frequently raised by the Philippine SEC and the PSE in IPOs and other offerings of equity and debt securities. As a result of working in the country for many years, we have developed strong relationships with all of the leading law firms practicing in the Philippines. We are committed to bringing all our experience to bear on the successful completion of transactions.
