Doing Great by Doing More — Sarmiento Loriega Law Office

Banking and Finance Law

We advise, assist and represent clients on the legal and regulatory considerations for banking transactions including financial products, derivatives and other transactions involving banks or non-bank institutions regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. We also advise, assist and represent clients in the documentation and negotiation of financing facilities and loan transactions, guarantees, and other security arrangements.

With our extensive experience in regulatory compliance issues of banks and other Covered Persons under the Anti-Money Laundering Act as amended, we provide advice to ensure that our clients' transactions are not unduly hampered by the increasingly complex anti-money laundering regulations. We also suggest minimum due diligence checks on service providers, contractors, and other counter-parties of our clients who are conscious of the reputational risks of dealing with high-risk entities.
