Philippines

The Philippines is a developing country that has achieved higher economic growth rate in the past years as compared to its ASEAN counterparts. Factors which have contributed to the country’s growth and positive economic outlook are the government’s efforts to streamline investment related regulations, and the country’s growing population of more than 100 million where the average age group are in their young 20’s. Given the Philippines’ geographic proximity to Japan and the usage of English as one of the country’s official languages, the Philippines is expected to become an important investment destination for Japanese companies looking to expand their businesses in the ASEAN region.
With our extensive experience in Philippine law matters accumulated over years of practice and our network with prominent local law firms, we have been providing legal support and assistance to Japanese clients on the establishment of domestic subsidiaries, representative and branch offices, joint ventures with local companies, corporate mergers and acquisitions, real estate and infrastructure projects, capital market transactions, general corporate and employment matters, and other local compliance issues.
