ACCRALAW is synonymous with top-notch quality in the local IP sphere. With over 50 years in the business, this general law firm leverages its rich experience and army of lawyers to deliver comprehensive patent services for a diverse array of clientele. Leading the efforts is – as described by peers – “very capable” Alex Ferdinand Fider, who assists both foreign and local players across a broad spectrum of IP sectors. Foreign organisations such as the Japan Export Trade Organisation and The International Rice Institute often seek out his sage advice regarding intellectual property in the Philippines. Fider is not the only standout at the practice: Jose Eduardo Genilo handles drafting, enforcement and litigation, as well as freedom-to-operate opinions, while Richmond Lee excels in both contentious and non-contentious matters, as well as portfolio management advice.
