Competition Law

The issuance of the Philippine Competition Act ("PCA") in 2015 paved way for more regulatory policies in mergers and acquisitions of companies. The promulgation of an anti-competition statute made it relatively more difficult for corporations to proceed with acquisitions, while still expected to keep up with the challenges of the market.

The Firm, pursuant to its Mergers and Acquisitions practice, assists its clients handling these demands by ensuring compliance with the PCA. It engages in advising its clients of the requirements of the Philippine Competition Commission, facilitates the approvals needed, and handles the documentation of the whole process.
