IPI loses its lawyer

Phillip J. Tydingco, the high-powered lawyer who has been representing Imperial Pacific International (IPI) in a number of legal cases, has indicated that he will be stepping away from his role next week.

Tydingco joined IPI as general counsel in August 2017, having formerly served as chief prosecutor and chief deputy attorney general of Guam.

Tydingco’s departure was not anticipated, and no reasons for it have been publicly explained.

Initial reports are that Kelley M. Butcher will be taking his place as the firm’s lead lawyer.
