Celebrate Enjin Legal's exceptional achievement on the GC Powerlist alongside tech giants like Google, emphasizing their legal innovation and cost-efficiency.

The GC Powerlist is the world’s most prestigious recognition for company lawyers. In Southeast Asia, Enjin joins the APAC teams of tech companies Microsoft, Google and Airbnb and regional tech unicorns Grab, GoTo (Gojek/Tokopedia) and Lazada. Enjin was the only Singapore-based global blockchain team recognized, joined by Coins.ph from the Philippines.

The GC Powerlist is a mainstream and not tech-focused recognition. The list includes the region’s leading conglomerates, banks, telecoms, and F&B companies.

The team’s addition to the GC Powerlist emphasizes the Enjin ecosystem’s adherence to regulatory compliance and legal innovation. The team was recognized for leading commercial partnerships and tech integrations, often working alongside blockchain developers and digital marketers. The team uses the same UX design and project management software as developers, and manages others such as enterprise grade blockchain accounting and tracking software. The team was also recognized for being extremely cost efficient, doing substantial work in-house and managing global work directly instead of appointing international legal counsel.

The team is led by:

Oscar Franklin Tan, CFA (Chief Financial Officer and Chief Legal Officer) previously advised Enjin since 2018 while in a leading international law firm. He was recognized as one of Southeast Asia’s leading venture capital and fintech lawyers by Chambers and Partners. He was also recognized as a 2017 JCI International “Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World” joining Asia awardees such as Jacky Chan, Michelle Yeoh and Queen Rania of Jordan. He holds a Master of Laws from Harvard Law School, a Bachelor of Laws from the University of the Philippines, and a double-major in Management Engineering and Economics (Honors) from the Ateneo de Manila University. He is qualified in New York.

Isabel “Ish” Guidote-Pangalangan (General Counsel and VP-Legal) previously worked in a leading corporate law firm and as a Chief of Staff in the Philippine Competition Commission. She holds a Master of Laws from Harvard Law School, a Master’s in Economics for Competition Law from King’s College London, a Juris Doctor from the University of the Philippines, and a Bachelors of Communications Technology Management from the Ateneo de Manila University. She is qualified in New York and England and Wales. She was previously a performance level ballerina.

Nadaine Tongco-Edades, CPA ( VP-Finance & Tax, Controller and Associate General Counsel) previously worked in a leading corporate law firm and Ernst & Young audit. She is currently the youngest tax faculty member of the University of the Philippines College of Law, and ranked 6th in the 2018 Philippine national bar exams and was featured in primetime TV and front pages of newspapers. She holds a Juris Doctor and a double-major in Business Administration and Accountancy from the University of the Philippines.
