The firm: MOSVELDTT is a full-service law firm committed to delivering success to its clients. The firm's areas of practice underpin the main areas of business activity. The team crafts solutions for cases involving mergers and acquisitions, foreign investments, public-private partnership arrangements, corporate rehabilitation and restructuring, intellectual property, licensing, franchising and technology transfer, banking and finance, mining, energy, litigation, alternative dispute resolution, intellectual property, labour, taxation, estate planning and immigration. With professionals who have personally navigated the complex interstices of business and regulation, the firm intimately understands the issues faced by decision-makers. The team crosses practices and assembles the needed skills and experience to provide clients desired results and the necessary outcome.

The partnership is composed of former senior lawyers from the Philippines' leading litigation, banking, labour and intellectual property firms. As preferred consultants to government and private organisations, entrepreneurs and professors, each partner brings more than the usual legal experience to the table. The firm offers a holistic perspective in devising solutions to issues that affect you. Client satisfaction is the cornerstone of the practice and its indicator of success. The firm employs a partner-to-associate ratio that maximises partner-level attention to client concerns. This ensures that engagements are never delegated to the lowest level, and that clients receive the expertise and experience they pay for.

Areas of practice: The firm boasts a robust corporate services and finance group that assists clients in the effective management and growth of their business. The acquisitions group's breadth of experience encompasses all aspects of negotiated acquisitions, including taxable and tax-free mergers, stock and asset acquisitions, spin-off transactions, management buyouts and other leveraged buyouts. The lawyers comprising the mining, energy and natural resources group are recognised for their breadth of work and experience in these sectors, leveraging both industry experience and regulatory savvy derived from work as government consultants.

Leveraging strengths and minimising risk in all venues is the cornerstone of the litigation group. The firm evaluates each engagement to determine the best scenario to achieve victory. The intellectual property group is at the forefront of the most challenging issues in the development, protection and exploitation of intellectual property assets.

The labour relations and executive compensation group provides efficient and practical advice on issues that arise from ongoing operations. The firm has advised top corporations and individuals on all phases of employment matters. Lawyers in the immigration group advise international businesses, major domestic companies, entrepreneurs and visionaries in developing or maintaining operations in the country. Lastly, clients come to the tax group for broad-based and sophisticated tax management strategies that are custom-built to their exacting needs.
