To All My Friends and Colleagues:

I am incredibly humbled and deeply honored to share with you some wonderful news that I received yesterday, October 11. I have been recognized as one of the “Top 100 Lawyers in the Philippines” by Asia Business Law Journal (ABJL).

I invite you to check out the full list :

This award is not a personal achievement but a testament to the unwavering support and trust of a greater collective rallying behind and around me — my mentors, colleagues, law firm partners and law firm associates who work with me in strong and efficient teams (and who put up with my daily grind!), my clients, family, and everyone who has been a part of my career journey.

Not once did I “seek” this award. I knew others had it, but I did not let it shape me in all my dealings. I felt that it came to me purely as a blessing. I woke up one day, while Karen, Olivia, and I were spending time with family in Georgia last July 7, and as we were gearing up for a round of golf on a sunny, hot day, when I received early in the morning a message from ABJL that I am to receive the Top 100 award. I did not know how to react to it. I only felt immense gratitude. The feeling was pure.

I give my heartfelt gratitude to my wife Karen and my family for their unending support, to my friends for their encouragement, and to my fellow legal professionals who continuously inspire me with their dedication and passion for service.

This recognition serves as a reminder of the responsibility we bear as lawyers:
🙏 To always advocate for what is right
🙏 To work tirelessly for the betterment of Filipinos, in ways that showcase our talents and God-given gifts throughout the world. We are always better than this, and we are built for something bigger.
🙏 To always exert thought leadership, and to serve as an example and as an inspiration for all communities and circles here and elsewhere.

I would like to thank Asia Business Law Journal for this prestigious honor.

I also wish to congratulate our Managing Partner, Mark S. Gorriceta, for his 4-peat recognition on the A-List! You continue to inspire many of us at the Firm to rise higher.

In the end, while this award is a personal recognition, it is but a manifestation of a bigger, collective effort — of something which I only form a small part.

Thank you once again for your unwavering support and encouragement. I look forward to continuing this incredible journey and in making a meaningful impact.

Edsel
