BESTING 13 other companies in the Asia and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions, the Shell Companies in the Philippines (SciP) legal team was recognized as the In-House Legal Team of the Year at the fifth annual In-House Community Counsel of the Year Awards.

The team won the award for its several milestone achievements, including the protection of an open and competitive fuel market — a testament to their dedication toward good corporate governance and consistent legal compliance.

By developing a one-page guideline that distills the relevant laws and jurisprudence on job contracting, handling competitively sensitive information, and employee discipline and performance management, top and mid-level managers are now more informed of the legal aspects of their transactions.

It was also recognized for seeking and receiving accreditation by the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to conduct in-house training on corporate governance for Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation’s (PSPC) management, board of directors and key officers.

“This award is a testament to the team’s efforts for the past several years. The team has consistently demonstrated excellence and strong performance, by providing legal advice in a pro-active, timely, cost effective and professional manner. Actually the second accolade the team has received from its peers after the prestigious Asian Legal Business award for Philippine In-House Team in 2016, this is proof that the SciP Legal Team is indeed one of the best corporate legal teams in the world,” lawyer Jannet Regalado said.
