Firm Profile

The Firm was recently cited as one of the leading law firms in shipping practice in the Philippines by Chambers Asia, “having been a regular sight in the commoditized insurance related cargo claims works, in which it has established a successful niche”. It is presently the resident agent in the Philippines of The Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company of Connecticut, as affiliate of American Insurance Group (AIG).

Astorga & Repol Law Offices was founded in 1989 by Atty. Arturo Carlos O. Astorga II, formerly the Head of the Claims Department of several foreign shipping companies, namely the Scandutch, East Asiatic Co., Ltd., Neddloyd Lines and Willine Line, and the first youngest ever elected President and former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Maritime Law Association of the Philippines (MARLAW) and whose extensive dealings with shipping lines, P & I Clubs, maritime practitioners and claims officers enabled him to acquire broad knowledge, training and exposure in handling maritime and insurance cases with dispatch and less expense.

His relatively young and dynamic partner, Atty. Baltazar Y. Repol was also the past President and former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of MARLAW. Astorga & Repol Law Offices is now one of the leading law firms engaged in insurance and maritime practice in the country. The Firm provides professional services to its clients with utmost competence and dedication putting together the Firm’s excellent knowledge in the field and practical approaches to legal issues with a view to terminating cases with dispatch and at least expense.
