SyCipLaw’s 2017 Yearend Activities

SyCip Salazar Hernandez & Gatmaitan (SyCipLaw) ended 2017 with its traditional celebrations, such as the Palarong SyCip, the SyCipLaw Christmas Party, and Cheese and Cheers. In addition, the firm organized a holiday storybook drive “Sa Pagbasa, May Pag-asa”.

The SyCipLaw sports fest, Palarong SyCip, was held on the 25th of November, 2017 at the High Court, Bayanihan Center, Pasig City. A total of 83 legal and non-legal staff engaged in friendly matches of basketball, volleyball, and dodgeball. Cheering, patintero, and mural-making competitions were also held.

Members of the SyCipLaw community dressed up for the 2017 Christmas Party themed #GetYourComicOn. Aside from the Best Costume competitions, partners, associates and non-legal staff competed in the Human Bingo and Comic Strip contests. The event also highlighted Loyalty Awardees and the firm’s notable 2017 activities and achievements.

#GetYourComicOn was held on the 15th of December 2017 at the New World Hotel, Makati.

The Firm Christmas Party was followed by the traditional Cheese and Cheers held on the 20th of December, 2017 at the 17/F of the SyCipLaw Center. Cheese and Cheers is not the typical annual legal staff Christmas party; it is also formally welcomes the firm’s first year associates.

The firm also participated in the “Sa Pagbasa, May Pag-asa” (literal English translation: In Reading, There’s Hope). The campaign advocates exposure of public school children to a wide range of creative, interesting and age-appropriate reading materials, and in so doing, instill in them a culture of reading that is critical to the learning and development process.

As of the 1st week of January, the firm collected donations amounting to approximately 700 books. The firm’s HR Department is coordinating the selection of beneficiary schools, purchase of books, and details of the turn-over.
