Ocampo & Suralvo Law Recognized as Top Philippines Law Firm for 2020 by Asia Business Law Journal

Asia Business Law Journal recently released its 2020 Philippines Law Firm Awards. We are delighted to announce that Ocampo & Suralvo Law Offices (“OS Law”), DFDL’s affiliate firm, has been recognized in Asia Business Law Journal’s taxation practice rankings!

DFDL extends our congratulations to the tax team of OS Law on attaining this richly deserved recognition and being counted among one of the top four Philippine law firms for tax services.

Leading OS Law’s tax team is Atty. Karen Ocampo. Her experience in tax matters is wide-ranging and encompasses everything from tax planning, cross-border transaction advisory and restructuring to tax controversy, advocacy and dispute resolution.

Asia Business Law Journal noted that “Ocampo & Suralvo is a leading Filipino law firm that has a formidable reputation for its tax practice. It is an affiliate firm of a leading regional law firm network, DFDL. Ocampo Suralvo has full-service capabilities offering general corporate and commercial legal advice across the spectrum of client business concerns including M&A, joint ventures, restructuring, foreign direct investment, and taxation. The firm’s tax practice, headed by partner Karen Ocampo, has received wide recognition from clients and peers.

Ahn Cheolhyo, a foreign attorney at Bae Kim & Lee in Seoul, commenting on Ocampo & Suralvo Law Offices’ accolades: “I have been working with Jude Ocampo at Ocampo & Suralvo for four or five years, for mainly Korean companies, on various issues such as M&A, real estate development, bankruptcy and potential litigation issues. Jude and his colleagues have been very professional, competitive, responsive and co-operative. Sometimes, Korean clients are quite demanding and responsive, but Jude and his colleagues never disappointed our clients, in particular, in terms of timing and quality of their services. In particular, I appreciate their active advice and efforts to provide any alternative structure/method if the contemplated structure of the clients has any material legal issue. Their proposed alternatives have been extremely helpful to clients. In terms of the number of attorneys, they may not be as big as major law firms in the Philippines, but I strongly believe the quality of their services is as good as any major law firm in the Philippines. I have never been hesitant to recommend Jude and his law firm to my clients.

Jack Sheehan, DFDL Partner & Head of Regional Tax Practice, has commented that:  “This recognition gives credit to the remarkable achievements and hard work by OS Law tax team”.

The winners of Asia Business Law Journal’s Philippines Law Firm Awards were selected based on votes, references and qualitative information received from in-house counsel, other legal professionals and industry peers in the Philippines and around the world.
