Primary Practice Areas

CORPORATE & COMMERCIAL

Corporate and Commercial is one of our most dynamic practice areas, positioning the Firm as a true market leader in Vietnam.  For inbound investment, we have first-hand experience and provide practical and quality pre-incorporation legal services and are highly regarded as "extremely innovative,” and "effective and well-placed" in securing licenses for our clients - both complex and simple, and both foreign and domestic - and in navigating Vietnam’s often confusing legal and commercial waters.
 
We have:
 
  • obtained the first foreign investment license for a joint venture developing residential housing and apartments for sale;
  • assisted in procuring first foreign investment licenses in the healthcare and education sectors;
  • facilitated the largest joint venture cement manufacturing project and the largest deepwater container port project in Vietnam;
  • advised on the first US insurance license issued to a US company in Vietnam
 
Our clients are high-profile, both international and domestic, and engaged in various sectors across Vietnam’s growing economy.  They include companies in consumer goods, food and beverage production and distribution, furniture manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and medical equipment, real estate, banking and micro-finance, infrastructure development, mining, shipping logistics, oil and gas (upstream and downstream), education and healthcare.
 
The services and advice provided to our clients ranges from general corporate and regular operational matters such compliance, tax, import/export, customs, labour, intellectual property, land and properties/assets, to more complex and tailored commercial arrangements including domestic or cross-border business transactions, franchising, distribution, agency and outsourcing.
 
The legal environment in Vietnam is always changing and in need of constant monitoring, analysis and interpretation.  The Firm is well-equipped to keep our clients informed and up-to-speed in this regard, and to work with them toward implementing new and creative ways of transacting their business activities, whether they be in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi or somewhere in between.
