DivinaLaw is a leading full-service law firm in the Philippines. It was established in 2006 by Atty. Nilo T. Divina. The firm started with five lawyers coming from different areas of legal practice. From the beginning, it has particularly distinguished itself in a full range of corporate legal practice, particularly corporate take-over, mergers and acquisitions, corporate rehabilitation. Advocating and practicing dynamic lawyering—being prompt, proactive, and results oriented—DivinaLaw quickly grew to become one of the largest law firms in the Philippines, with 65 lawyers in its roster and counting.
At DivinaLaw, we endeavor to understand our clients’ needs so we can give them the best legal service possible. We aim to exceed their expectations at every turn.
Our practice includes the entire spectrum of Philippine law. Our litigation practice covers corporate, criminal and civil litigation, alternative dispute resolution, estates and trusts, immigration, labor and employment, elections, administrative regulation, and maritime law. Our corporate practice includes banking and finance, construction, mergers and acquisition, foreign investments, securities, corporate rehabilitation, insurance, public-private partnerships, mining and natural resources, energy, utilities regulation, intellectual property, sports and entertainment, and taxation.
Our clients include leading companies in banking and finance, manufacturing, retail, power, oil and gas, education, health care and insurance, realty and property development, and technology. Our lawyers are some of the most qualified and experienced in their respective fields, and we recruit only the top graduates from the leading law schools.
The firm is bent on conquering not just the Philippine legal landscape, but the great Asian region as well. Its aggressive and rapid expansion became eminent when it opened its Cebu satellite office in 2015, and the Singapore Corporate office in 2016 (the only Philippine law firm to do so). DivinaLaw also partnered with 13 local law firms who represent clients all over the Philippines, as part of its aim to reach out to a wider range of clients and to complement its corporate, commercial, and arbitration-related services.

We are also the only Philippine member of LEGALINK, also a top-ranked global network of 68 independent law firms from a majority of the world’s commercial centers.
