ACCRALAW was founded in the year 1972 by five partners aiming to establish an institutional law firm by its competent pillars.
The firm is the brainchild of Edgardo J. Angara and the late Manuel G. Abello who met at the University of the Philippines College of Law. The partners found a niche gathering mostly to local enterprises and individuals whose legal requirements are not given as much priority as the legal profession is dominated by firms catering mostly to multinational corporations. They envisioned the firm to provide legal advice and expertise to this group.
Eventually, Teodoro D. Regala and Jose C. Conception, their former classmates from UP College of Law joined Abello and Angara. Avelino V. Cruz, Angara?s classmate at the Univeristy of Michigan Law School also joined in to complete the founding partners.
ACCRALAW opened its first office on May 1, 1972 at the Philippine Bank of Commerce Building. The firm started with just six lawyers that eventually grew to more than 30 prompting the move to their own building at ACCRA Building on Gamboa Street, Makati.
Because it has become one of the country?s leaders and largest law firms, the firm established a branch in other parts of the country- in Cebu in 1980 and in Davao in 1996. The growing firm later moved to a much bigger and modern office at the ACCRALAW Tower in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
The firm now has 150 lawyers, 41 of whom are partners, and 130 support staff. ACCRALAW is known to handle complicated international transactions with it being capable to transact real time with international partners. Correspondent firms are also positioned outside the country.
The firm can handle every type of legal issue that clients want to find resolution for.
