Our knowledgeable team of lawyers with experience in Southeast Asia is qualified to practice in multiple jurisdictions—including Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Vietnam. Our work assisting clients in the region encompasses local and cross-border corporate and business transactions, finance, restructuring, asset management, and dispute resolution.
We represent clients across Southeast Asia in a range of sectors, from banking, finance, commodities, insurance, and telecommunications to construction, manufacturing, minerals, oil and gas, and shipping. Our Southeast Asia team—in collaboration with our lawyers across the globe—understands the myriad business and regulatory challenges these industries face and has comprehensive knowledge of the local, regional, and cross-border legal frameworks in which they operate. We provide innovative legal solutions to help our clients navigate this landscape and attain their business goals in the region and beyond.
Through Morgan Lewis Stanford, our office in Singapore, we regularly advise on complex, cross-border deals involving mandatory, voluntary, and partial offers; reverse takeovers; and change-of-control acquisitions. We also have advised on capital markets transactions particular to Southeast Asia, and we counsel issuers, underwriters, placement agents, selling security holders, investors, corporate trustees, and other market participants in structuring their capital markets transactions.
For our private equity and fund clients in Southeast Asia, we routinely provide advice on regulatory issues relating to fund managers and fund entities, as well as fund formation and downstream investment–related activities. Our banking and finance lawyers represent lenders, underwriters, borrowers, agents, and other stakeholders on a diverse range of domestic and cross-border transactions. And we have a demonstrated record in the region of advising on projects involving restructurings, acquisitions, divestments, joint ventures, and real estate developments.
Additionally, our dispute resolution team has the multijurisdictional capabilities necessary to resolve commercial, corporate, and financial disputes before major arbitration tribunals in Southeast Asia and around the world.
