BENEDICTA DU BALADADPRESIDENT
Atty. BENEDICTA “Dick” DU-BALADAD, the Founding Partner and CEO
of Du-Baladad & Associates (BDB Law), takes on the role of leading the Management
Association of the Philippines (MAP) for 2023 with her election as its 75th President.
Atty. Du-Baladad brings to the table a solid experience in management - an accountant and a lawyer, with a joint degree of Masters of Law and International Tax Program at the Harvard University, USA.
Her experience, expertise, determination, and strong will, all contributed to making BDB Law one of the leading tax and corporate law firms today leading to its consistent recognition as an outstanding tax law firm by international ranking bodies, including the Chambers and Partners, International Tax Review, Legal 500 and Asia Legal Business.
Dick herself is a multi-awarded lawyer. She was named National Leader for Southeast Asia - Corporate Tax in the 2022 edition of Who's Who Legal (WWL) Thought Leaders and is consistently ranked by Asia Business Law Journal as one of the Philippines’ top 100 lawyers (2018-2022). A highly regarded name in the field of taxation, she has been recognized for consecutive years as an Elite Tax Practitioner by International Tax Review, a Band 1 Leading Lawyer by Chambers and Partners, and a Tax Dispute Resolution Lawyer by Women in Business Law.
She was the President of the Financial Executives Institute of the Philippines (FINEX) in 2017. She spearheaded the creation of the FINEX Academy as a center of learning and excellence on capital market development in the country. From 2019 to 2022, she served as the Co-Chairman of the Capital Market Development Council (CMDC).
A former official of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), she served in various posts in offices involved in operations, policy formulation and legal. One of her significant contributions in the BIR was the setting up of and designing the organizational structure of the Large Taxpayers Service (LTS).
She moved to the private sector in 2001 and shortly thereafter became the president of the Tax Management Association of the Philippines (TMAP), a premiere organization of tax practitioners in the country. These valuable insights into both the public and private sectors and her notable objective thinking are attributes that serve her well in her role as a consultant of the government on various projects, including those on tax reforms, pension reforms and capital market development initiatives.
Currently, she serves as a Director of various companies and NGOs, both here and abroad. Included in her directorships are: Asia Pacific Director for WTS Global (Netherlands), Vice Chair of Bank of Commerce (BankCom), and Trustee of Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) and Women Business Council of the Philippines. She is also a professorial lecturer at the College of Law of University of the Philippines (UP) and University of Santo Tomas (UST). As a subject expert in Taxation, she has written books on the specialized taxation of the banking, insurance and financial intermediation sectors.
In 2015, she established the BDB Law Foundation identifying education as a top priority. From its inception up to now, the Foundation continues to build and donate school buildings, clinics and other facilities to public schools in far–flung areas nationwide This is to help provide access to good education and enable conducive learning environment to these areas where resources are scarce. As she always voice out, ‘kahit isang bata lang na makapag-aral sa bawat pamilya, aangat and buong pamilya nila (at least one college graduate for every Filipino home can save a whole family from poverty).
Gifted with a creative side, Dick is also a writer, a painter, a fashion designer and a lover of nature. She is a proud mother of 4 boys.
