May 2005 sees the Philippine law firm of Carpio Villaraza Cruz celebrating its 25th anniversary. This book, which marks this auspicious occasion, charts the history of the practice from the birth of the idea to the present day. Beginning with three founding partners- Antonio T. Carpio, F. Arthur L. Villaraza, and Avelino J. Cruz, Jr.- it traces the fortunes of The Firm through martial law, two EDSA Revolutions, the early years of personal challenges, and the remarkable period of growth and prosperity.
In many respects, the story of Carpio Villaraza Cruz mirrors that of the nation over this same period. Today, 25 years after The Firm was founded, it is one of the most respected law firms in the country. This publication is a celebration of The Firm’s success story and the lives and achievements of the partners and other players who made it happen.
