Marcial taps lawyer to handle his business affairs
Giving national boxer Eumir Marcial a better understanding of the numerous offers that come his way will be one of the many responsibilities that lawyer Clint Aranas will have when he starts to handle the boxer's business affairs.
This is what he offered Marcial when he tapped him as his legal counsel last week.“In all his transactions as a professional, I am handling his contractual obligations so he can concentrate on his training, instead of thinking of what taxes that he is going to pay,” said Aranas.
Aranas, who will take on his role with Marcial on a pro bono basis, will be around when the 24-year-old Marcial gets ready to turn professional after the Tokyo Olympics.
Marcial sought Aranas' services after he was deluged by offers from international promoters.
Aranas was chosen because of his background, first of which is his vast knowledge and experience in sports as president of a national sports association.
Aranas, is the current president of World Archery Philippines, the national association of archery in the country.
For now, Marcial is currently studying his options, according to Aranas.
He will soon decide if he will accept professional offers.
And it can happen before, or after the Olympics.
“Eumir will make this declaration when the time comes,” Aranas.
Aranas was also the former president of the Government Service Insurance System president and a former deputy commissioner for legal affairs with the Bureau of Internal Revenue.
“Mas nagkaroon po ako ng confidence na magiging successful ako hindi lang as boxer kungdi as someone na magkakaroon ng business dealings dahil may isang lawyer po ako na makakasama at mapapagkatiwalaan,” said Marcial.
