Providing an essential international perspective.

Key Contacts

We act for international companies investing in the Philippines and for major Philippine companies both locally and internationally. We also have significant experience in acting for the Philippine government and government-related entities.

Increasingly, doing business in the Philippines demands international experience alongside local legal knowledge. Pinsent Masons fulfils that role, bringing the expertise born out of working on similar transactions throughout the world.

Transactions such as infrastructure and major projects, greenfield development, energy, privatisation, acquisitions and disposals of infrastructure assets are all areas where our experience extends to the Philippines.

Working with you

We have been involved with many transactions in the Philippines over the years, working closely with local law firms as necessary, and can offer the best of both worlds to our clients: indigenous knowledge combined with extensive international experience, all project managed by Pinsent Masons, ensuring a business outcome in line with your specific needs.

Our promise is simple: to work hard to make it easier for you to achieve your business objectives.
