Managing Partner Kurt Glen T. Yeung comments:
“We are excited and honoured to have been selected as AGA’s sole representative law member in the Philippines. We now have access to professional colleagues across nearly a hundred jurisdictions to whom we can reach out whenever our clients require additional legal or accounting assistance.
“By visibly representing AGA as its exclusive law firm member in the region, we can, with the support of its strong brand, promote our international profile extensively and by working with fellow members domestically and globally, we hope to build a firm foundation of friendship which in turn will lead to mutually beneficial business opportunities for all.”
Alliott Global Alliance’s CEO, Giles Brake adds:
