Sidley has more than 20 years of experience in handling Indonesian-related matters, with several of the firm’s lawyers regarded as leading individuals in their fields and recommended as foreign counsel for Indonesian matters. Based in both the Singapore and Hong Kong offices, our lawyers work seamlessly together to provide superior client service to Indonesian clients, as well as to international clients conducting cross-border transactions involving Indonesia. Several members of our team spend a significant amount of their time in Indonesia and on related matters and are therefore well versed in Indonesian laws and regulations as well as local business customs.
We assist clients from a wide range of industries, including in the areas of financial services; technology, telecommunications and media; mining and metals; paper, pulp and plantations; energy, power, oil and gas; real estate; and transportation. We advise on the U.S. law aspects of transactions that cover a broad range of practice areas, including capital markets, corporate/mergers and acquisitions, restructuring and liability management, banking, structured finance and securitization, project finance and infrastructure.
Sidley is recognized by industry publications such as Chambers and Asia Pacific Legal 500 as one of the leading international law firms that work on Indonesia-related matters. Indonesian transactions we have handled have been named "Best Secondary Offering/Rights Issue;" Best High Yield Bond;" "Best Indonesia Deal;" "Asia Pacific Telecoms Deal of the Year;" "ECA and Commercial Loan Deal of the Year;" "Indonesian Capital Markets Deal of the Year;" "Best International Securitization;" "Most Innovative Deal;" and "South East Asia Structured Finance and Securitization Deal of the Year."
We advise on U.S. law and, because international law firms are not permitted to practice Indonesian law, we nurture strong and well developed working relationships with local leading lawyers and consultants to ensure that our clients receive high-quality domestic legal representation.
