Building Myanmar: Bridging the Infrastructure Gap
A gap exists between funding needed for required infrastructure in Myanmar, and the combined local/foreign investment available

Overview

For 60 years, Baker & McKenzie has been dedicated to helping clients enter new markets. Opening our first office in Myanmar in 2014 is evidence of that commitment, serving as an outpost for investors looking for growth opportunities in the country. Our international and Myanmar lawyers help clients develop their Myanmar strategies and establish local operations while providing local assistance to businesses making investments in the country at all stages of development.

Ranked Band 2 by Chambers Global for General Business, our Yangon lawyers work with colleagues across our offices in the ASEAN Economic Community to advise clients on foreign direct investment, finance, intellectual property, tax, capital markets and mergers and acquisitions. Our expertise aligns with the needs of key industry sectors, including oil and gas, power, water, transport, telecoms, banking, tourism and consumer goods.

As a leading global law firm with a strong on-the-ground presence in Myanmar, we understand the country's rapidly evolving legal and regulatory environment and know the lawmakers and associations who are driving it, enabling us to help clients navigate the complex and often ambiguous business climate. As the Myanmar government continues to liberalise the economy, we have been involved in major initiatives such as drafting a Myanmar company law.
