About the Resource Center

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire world, and here in the Philippines, it has caused the declaration of a Philippine national emergency. The Philippine government has issued various regulations to address this emergency, and access to information, including legal and policy information, is key to weathering this crisis.

SyCip Salazar Hernandez and Gatmaitan (SyCipLaw) created https://syciplawresources.com (beta) to keep in one place relevant government issuances and its bulletins and briefings for its clients. We hope that this site will serve as an information hub that will help make it easy for SyCipLaw clients to be updated with COVID-19-related advisories that may be relevant to their business operations.
