Manila, 25 November 2021 - The Legal 500 names Quisumbing Torres (QT) as the Philippine Law Firm of the Year 2020/21 at their inaugural Southeast Asia Awards.

"This is a hugely trusted firm based on its track record of deftly guiding international clients entering the Philippines market through the local complexities and regulations. It offers decades of experience across all the main practice areas and aside from outstanding work, its global connections benefits home grown and multi-national clients alike. Many congratulations to Quisumbing Torres, a member firm of Baker McKenzie International, who takes the award for Philippines Law firm of the Year at The Legal 500's inaugural Southeast Asia Awards for 2020/21,"  said Bei Zhao, editor of The Legal 500 Asia Pacific

The awards recognize firms whose work has exceeded expectations and raised standards over the past 24 months. Winners are determined through market-leading research undertaken by both their editorial team as part of the annual Legal 500 Asia Pacific submission process and their private practice and GC Powerlist research teams.

QT is a Legal 500 tier one law firm for Antitrust and Competition, Corporate and M&A, Dispute Resolution, Labor and Employment, Immigration, Intellectual Property, Projects and Energy, Real Estate and Constructions, TMT and Tax. The firm has consistently maintained this top recognition for several years — more than ten years for some categories, such as Labor and Employment, Immigration and Intellectual Property. While several QT lawyers across practice groups are cited Legal 500 leading lawyers in their field, Employment Partners Gil Zerrudo and Kenneth Chua, and Corporate and Commercial/M&A partner Dennis Quintero were named as Legal 500 Hall of Fame lawyers.
