The Practice of Doing Good


PunoLaw is the leading law firm recognized for its highest quality legal service and representation of clients. From its original core legal practice of litigation and dispute resolution as founded by Justice Ricardo Puno, Sr. in 1984, PunoLaw has evolved into a full service firm and broadened its prominent position in other fields of law covering key business sectors in the Philippines, including energy and power, infrastructure, banking, project finance, property development and mining.


“My vision for the firm – The transformation of the practice of law as a model of change for society.”

Founding Partner

 The firm has expanded its lawyer base through intensified recruitment among top graduates of premier law schools in the Philippines. From a nucleus of only 20 associates in 2004, PunoLaw has grown to over 50 lawyers today as it continues to establish its legacy in the legal profession.
