Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution

Contact Atty. Mario V. Andres

Handling an active case load involving civil, criminal and administrative litigation, our lawyers appear before all the courts (Metropolitan and Municipal Trial Courts; Regional Trial Courts; the Sandiganbayan [a special Philippine court with jurisdiction over matters involving public officers]; the Court of Tax Appeals; the Court of Appeals; and the Supreme Court) and almost all the quasi-judicial bodies (including the National Labor Relations Commission; the Securities and Exchange Commission; the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board; the Home Insurance Guaranty Corporation; the Office of the Ombudsman; City and Provincial Prosecutors; Office of Legal Affairs of the Department of Trade and Industry; the Civil Service Commission).

We handle trial and appellate proceedings. Our lawyers are trained to study the art of trial, and to develop their writing skills and a “to-the-point” writing style for appellate practice.

We are also active in international arbitration, the most active matter to date being our firm’s work as Philippine counsel for German airport operator Fraport, which has successfully pursued investment arbitration under the World Bank’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) process.
