Gatmaytan Yap Patacsil Gutierrez & Protacio (C&G Law) is a full-service law firm of over 50 lawyers in the Philippines specializing in corporate and commercial transactions, litigation and arbitration, taxation, as well as labor and employment.
It was established in February 2007 by Alfredo Benjamin S. Caguioa, Jaime Renato B. Gatmaytan, Ben Dominic R. Yap, Norma Margarita B. Patacsil, Anthony Mark A. Gutierrez, and Jesus Paolo U. Protacio, each of whom brought significant experience and expertise in a broad range of practice areas and in diverse fields of law. The firm currently has 14 partners.
C&G Law was formerly known as Caguioa & Gatmaytan. The change of name was brought about by Mr. Caguioa’s withdrawal from the firm in January 2013 following his appointment as Chief Presidential Legal Counsel and subsequently as Secretary of the Department of Justice by Philippine President Benigno C. Aquino III. In January 2016, Mr. Caguioa was appointed as an Associate Justice of the Philippine Supreme Court.
C&G Law is regarded as a top-ranked firm in the Philippines in Construction, Dispute Resolution (including Arbitration), Energy, Infrastructure, Projects, Real Estate and Taxation. It is also well-regarded in the Corporate and M&A and Labor and Employment fields. The firm has received a number of awards for its work in these fields.
C&G Law is a member firm of the Rajah & Tann Asia, Southeast Asia’s largest legal network.
