Ms. Anonuevo has been in law practice for 28 years and has acquired substantial experience advising major local and foreign clients in the fields of banking, project finance, privatization, infrastructure, foreign investments, mergers and acquisitions, corporate rehabilitation and restructuring, securities and land acquisition and development.

She worked on the financing of the Manila North Tollway Project involving the rehabilitation and expansion of the North Luzon Expressway, where she represented a syndicate of lending institutions that included multilateral and export credit agencies and commercial banks.
