What the team is known for
This content is provided by SyCip Salazar Hernandez & Gatmaitan.
Our Banking, Finance & Securities group has been consistently recognized by the financial and business community as the Philippine leader in this practice. It is a mainstay in country surveys as a top choice for local counsel. We represent and advise most of the major banks and financial institutions, both local and foreign, in all types of financing transactions and regulatory matters.
The group is a pioneer in banking and finance as a specialization for a full-service firm, with one of its first major projects being our engagements as counsel to all creditor banks of the Republic of the Philippines in relation to the country's 1980s debt moratorium. Today, we are assisting clients in Fintech projects, from payment services to virtual currency to online lending, and the latest regulations on cyber security and privacy.
On regulatory matters, we provide advice and accomplish jurisdictional questionnaires for foreign clients on topics ranging from licensing, inward investments (especially in light of the most recent liberalization of our banking laws that allow up to 100% equity for foreign banks) to specific products including lending, securities or commodities trading, securities custodial services, online trading, and financial advisory.
Our experience in financing work cuts across not only in terms of structures – from bilaterals to syndicated and club-type financings – but also in industries.
