Based on our experience shaping policy in Vietnam by drafting securities, investment, intellectual property and competition laws for the government, we draw on our in-depth local knowledge and extensive global network to advise clients on complex domestic and cross-border transactions and legal matters.

As market leaders in Real Estate, Corporate & Commercial and Mergers & Acquisitions, we advise on major development, project finance, environmental and general investment matters, assisting both local and international clients on power, construction and infrastructure projects.

Intellectual Property Vocational Training Course: Because IP law is one of the fastest-growing legal specialities in the world, we created this program to train and develop young IP industry experts in Vietnam. Participants in the program receive free training in our Hanoi office working with our intellectual property lawyers on actual cases.

LGBT issues: We were the first company to participate in the public campaign “Toi Dong Y” and publicly support same-sex marriage in Vietnam. We conduct trainings on LGBT diversity issues in our Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi office and participate in an LGBT Working Group comprised of representatives from Baker & McKenzie's Hong Kong, China and Vietnam offices.

Citizen Lab Project: As part of a pro bono project for Citizen Lab Project, we developed a questionnaire to assess whether reverse engineering computer programs for academic research create intellectual property, contractual and regulatory issues.
