Gatmaytan Yap Patacsil Gutierrez & Protacio, a leading full-service law company in the Philippines, agreed to join Rajah & Tann Asia, Southeast Asia’s largest legal network effective January 1, 2017.
The move will offer C&G Law’s clients seamless access to around 650 fee earners who are qualified to practise local law in nine countries in Southeast Asia.
Launched in 2014, the Rajah & Tann Asia network is the first extensive grouping that brings together the region’s premier law firms to provide coherent and authentically Asian legal services.
It is led by a regional management council, which comprises representatives from each of the firms that form the network. Jaime Renato Gatmaytan, C&G Law’s managing partner, will join the council as the Philippines’ representative.
C&G Law specializes in corporate and commercial transactions, litigation and arbitration, taxation, as well as labor and employment. The firm consists of over 30 fee earners servicing major Philippine conglomerates and multinational companies from a diverse range of sectors, including banking and financial, infrastructure and project finance, energy, manufacturing, education, medical and pharmaceutical.
“C&G Law is one of the most dynamic, progressive and well-regarded law firms in the Philippines. We are delighted that they are joining Rajah & Tann Asia at a time when the Philippines’ economy is enjoying a resurgence and many international and regional companies are stepping up their investments in the country,” Rajah & Tann Asia chairman Lee Eng Beng said.
“C&G Law will certainly boost our capabilities in helping clients navigate the diverse legal landscape in Asia,” he said.
“We are excited to be part of the Rajah & Tann Asia network and look forward to serving our clients’ needs outside the Philippines. They will now have access to a complete range of service capabilities from top notch lawyers in the region,” Gatmaytan said.
