Construction has always been the most dominant driver of any country’s economy and is global in its reach, interfacing with almost every walk of life from households to offshore and to space. It is said that “truth in science is what is empirically provable on the ground, and truth in philosophy is what one defines it to be”. The Firm’s construction law practice has been founded and continues to be led by the renowned and seasoned construction law practitioner, and international arbitrator lawyer-engineer J.G. Morallos. His decades of expertise is being shared with the members of the Firm, bringing to close relationship legal philosophy and engineering science, to understanding every client’s need from doing construction business, to business modeling, to contracting (allocating and managing risks), to enforcement and appropriate dispute resolution even in real time.
The Firm’s clients include either the biggest construction companies in the country or those in employer-industries like property developments, power plants, mining, road and other infrastructures, water and other utilities, etc., including interfacing with disciplines like engineering, architecture, quantity surveyors, project managers, development planners, and the like.
The Firm takes pride in that some of its more than a hundred of construction cases handled have become an invaluable part of Philippine jurisprudence.
The Firm, led by J.G. Morallos, may be said to be already an institution in the Philippine construction industry, having assisted the Government, the industry organizations, professional associations, etc. shape policies, draft general conditions of contract and like instruments useful to the construction industry, and provide continuing education.
This practice area is ably headed by Atty.-Engr. Jesusito G. Morallos.
