PJS Law has launched its previously announced combination with global law firm, Dentons. This launch positions the combined firm to serve clients in six ASEAN countries, representing 83% of the entire GDP of the ASEAN region, with offices in Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam.
PJS Law’s reputation as a leading service provider in the Philippines, coupled with Dentons’ worldwide reach, enables the combined firm to help clients Grow, Protect, Operate and Finance their organizations in the Philippines and more than 160 locations in over 80 countries around the world.
The combination is the result of a longstanding relationship between the two firms, aligned in helping clients meet future challenges and maximize opportunities in the Philippines and around the world. Dentons’ polycentric foundation allows the firm to be uniquely global yet deeply local in each of its locations, and accordingly PJS Law will retain control of its operations, finances and office leadership.
