Atty. Rainier R. Mamangun, formerly a lawyer for the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs, DFA, worked on labor, civil and criminal cases involving migrant workers and overseas Filipinos in distress. In this connection, he spearheaded various legal missions abroad to such countries as Malaysia, Indonesia, East Timor, Nepal, India, and Saudi Arabia. His work involved diplomatic representations with foreign governments as well as appearances before a foreign court. During his stint with the DFA, he was instrumental in rescuing countless victims of human smuggling and trafficking and in saving the lives of Filipinos on death row abroad.

Prior to this, he worked as a legal consultant to the National Federation of Labor Unions, NAFLU, one of the biggest labor federations in the Philippines.

In 2003, he was chosen by the Office of the Vice-President of the Philippines to be part of the Drafting Committee composed of distinguished professors of the University of the Philippines Law Faculty and representatives from concerned government agencies to draft the “Magna Carta for Seafarers”– a bill that aims to promote the welfare of millions of Filipino seafarers worldwide.

His experience in dealing with OFW concerns and involvement in the labor movement made him adept at tackling civil, criminal, immigration and labor matters.
