Industry law firm boosts overseas support

Mortgage law firm Bransgroves Lawyers has hired a Filipino corporate and employment lawyer to assist an increasing number of back offices established by Australian lenders and brokerages in the Philippines.

Jonathan Temporal formerly worked in one of the largest Filipino law firms in corporate and employment law and lectured at one of Manila’s top law schools, according to Bransgroves.

Mr Temporal moved to Australia in 2007 and worked for CBA for two years while awaiting admission to the Roll of Solicitors in New South Wales in August this year.

“Jonathan can guide you through the ins and outs, tricks and traps, and eccentricities of negotiating the corporate and employment legal landscape in the Philippines,” Bransgroves managing director Kat Cooper said.

“His knowledge and contacts in the Philippines are second to none and it is of great comfort to our clients to have access to such skills in an Australia-based lawyer.”

Ms Cooper said the firm is seeing an increasing number of lenders and broking groups establishing and further developing their offshore capabilities.

“The Philippines is by far and away the destination of choice for loans processing. The comprehension of written English is second to none because their schools and universities are taught English from K1 up,” she said.
