Legal research refers to the task of finding and gathering information necessary to support a legal case.

Philippines-qualified corporate lawyer

Singapore - Last active: 24 days ago - Tests: 3

As a Philippines-qualified lawyer with 7 years of post-qualification experience, I have handled a variety of commercial and technical contracts for individual and corporate clients while at a law firm, and as an in-house lawyer. I also performed corporate secretarial functions, which included preparation of minutes of the meeting, agenda, and materials, as well as transcription of meeting discussions. On top of my legal role, I also performed regulatory and listing functions in the Philippine fixed income and electricity markets, which enabled me to develop not only specific capital and energy markets experience, but also a valuable and transferable skill set in these fast-paced sectors. Equipped with the foregoing skills, it is my objective to provide prospective clients with relevant legal assistance and advice on corporate, securities, and energy law matters in a non-typical office setting.
