Firm3Our principal team is composed of Philippine attorneys with a combined experience of more than 60 years in the practice of law and previous leadership and specialist roles in a US-based international law firm.

Although we are a full service firm that can handle general corporate, employment, investment and dispute resolution matters, we specialize in intellectual property cases with particular focus on trademark registration and enforcement, copyright protection, and patent registration. We have extensive experience in the management and protection of intellectual property rights (IPR), including the enforcement of those rights before the courts and other government agencies in the Philippines.

We recognize the critical and indispensable value of promptness and responsiveness in the provision of legal services.  We implement measures to ensure that all communications and correspondence are promptly acknowledged and handled. Our attorneys enhance their expertise by being keenly aware of changes in the law, jurisprudence and regulations, and other developments that affect the ability of our clients to conduct their business or exercise their rights. We provide advice that takes into account all possible regulatory risks and we identify relevant issues when actual practice and precedents deviate from the academic treatment of a statute or regulation.

We act as counsel and intellectual property agent for only a limited number of well-established and reputable domestic and multinational clients, most of which are Fortune 500 companies. We follow a strict client intake process to avoid representation of conflicting interests by our firm.  We establish long-term client relationships through engagements that take advantage of our expertise in portfolio and compliance management but we are also able to quickly form solid collaboration with clients needing assistance in special projects.

We strive to keep our charges competitive and consistent with prevailing global financial conditions. However, our decision to accept alternative fee arrangements is always aligned with our policy to consistently devote the required attention and time for us to deliver thorough and practical legal service.

Our local expertise and global perspective help our clients keep their competitive lead.

BCCSLAW is a member of the Intellectual Property Association of the Philippines (IPAP), the Asian Patent Attorneys Association (APAA), the International Trademark Association (INTA) and Marques.
