Legal network Rajah & Tann Asia has extended its reach to the Philippines with a new member, C&G Law.

C&G Law, a full-service law firm in the Philippines, will become a member firm of Rajah & Tann Asia with effect from Jan 1 next year.

The firm works with major Philippine conglomerates and multinational companies operating in a diverse range of sectors.

"C&G Law is one of the most dynamic, progressive and well-regarded law firms in the Philippines. We are delighted that they are joining Rajah & Tann Asia at a time when the Philippine economy is enjoying a resurgence and many international and regional companies are stepping up their investments in the country," said Rajah & Tann Asia chairman Lee Eng Beng.

The Philippines has enjoyed rapid economic growth in recent years and business leaders have stepped up their overseas investments, said C&G Law managing partner Jaime Renato Gatmaytan.

"Joining the Rajah & Tann Asia network is not only timely, but necessary to meet the growing demands of our clients," he said.

The Rajah & Tann Asia network also includes law firms and lawyers in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
