Overview

C&G Law’s dispute resolution practice includes a solid arbitration practice.

The firm’s litigation practice is strong and extensive, and it includes representing and acting for its clients before courts and quasi-judicial bodies of all jurisdictions, levels, and venues, as well as before administrative and legislative bodies, in the Philippines. The arbitration practice of the firm is similarly formidable and includes experience in international and domestic arbitration. 

The firm’s litigation experience covers a diverse range of subjects, such as contractual disputes, product liability, torts, medical malpractice, intra-corporate controversies, enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards, natural resources and environmental law, public utilities, taxes and other governmental impositions, corporate rehabilitation, and banking and securities law. 

On the other hand, the firm’s substantial experience in international and domestic arbitration includes ad hoc arbitrations and those conducted under the auspices of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), the UNCITRAL, and the Construction Industry Arbitration Commission (CIAC).

As a result of all these, C&G Law has built a name for itself in the dispute resolution field, especially in those involving complex and high-value commercial disputes.
