Overview

As one of the longest-established international law firms in the country since opening our office in Yangon in 2013, we have a wealth of experience advising clients wishing to invest or conduct business in Myanmar.

We have been advising clients in all areas of business, including manufacturing, infrastructure (such as real estate, logistics, construction, communications and energy), finance, commerce, and services (IT, healthcare, and others). Regardless of the business area, we are able to provide our clients with a wide range of support, including conducting legal investigations focused on foreign direct investment regulations, advising on M&A and JV transactions with the Myanmar government and private parties, and obtaining various licenses.

In addition, through our experience in assisting Myanmar government offices in lawmaking and capacity building, we have established good relationships with them and gained a deep understanding of how laws are actually implemented on the ground.

It is said that one of the hurdles to entering the Myanmar market is the uncertainty of its laws and regulations as well as the operation thereof. The mission of the Yangon office is to use our considerable experience and resources to proactively take on challenges with our clients, overcome such hurdles and realize business opportunities in Myanmar, thereby contributing to the development of the country and the building of good relations between international investors and Myanmar.
