Philippine Chapters of:

Aleli Angela G. Quirino serves as an inspiring story for women to continue striving for excellence at whatever stage they are in life. Despite having joined the legal industry at the age of 40, she was made Partner at the Firm in just five (5) years and is a key figure in the establishment of the Intellectual Property Department in ACCRALAW. The IP practice, not as active as it is today, started as a part of an administrative department that handled special projects. She believed and strongly advocated that it was only a matter of time that the IP Practice will significantly grow and will need the manpower and administrative support given a full-blown division. Ms. Quirino has served as the Head of the Firm’s IP Practice from 1992 to 2007. Ms. Quirino was admitted to the Philippine Bar in 1985 and is a member of the Makati City Chapter of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines.
