Having more than 40 years combined experience in active law practice in the Philippines, the firm had its beginnings in 1990 when Attorney Frederick M. de Borja opened his private law practice. Shortly thereafter, he was joined by Attorney Crispiniano R. Lamorena, a classmate at the Ateneo de Manila University School of Law, who brought in his expertise in Banking, Housing and Land Use Law.
Ever sensitive to the needs of their clients, the partners saw the potential of opening a practice in the US mainland to meet the legal needs of Filipino immigrants as they pertain to Philippine law. An erstwhile estate practice designed for properties in the Philippines inherited by former Filipinos in the US has since expanded to include services on investments, how to form companies in the Philippines, and other business and corporate activities, real estate and stock transactions, and buy outs and buy ins to business entities in the Philippines.
The firm presently has a representative and affiliate presence in San Diego, California and plans are underway to soon do the same in the U.S. East Coast.
