DLA Piper has announced a strategic alliance with Ivan Almaida Baely & Firmansyah Law Firm (“IAB&F”) in Indonesia. IAB&F is one of Indonesia’s emerging business law firms, delivering premier Indonesian legal services to international and domestic corporations, investors and state owned enterprises.
DLA Piper has been actively involved in Indonesian matters for many years, with our lawyers advising Government, state-owned and local enterprises, international companies, financial institutions and funds on a broad range of matters. Our work includes major infrastructure projects, financings, restructurings, privatizations, mergers and acquisitions and joint venture projects in Indonesia. The association with IAB&F represents the next step in DLA Piper’s determination to deliver to our clients a trusted legal adviser wherever in the world their business requirements demand.
Sir Nigel Knowles, Global Co-CEO said: “At DLA Piper we make it our business to do business where our clients do business. Indonesia is one of the fastest growing emerging economies in the world, with a young population, burgeoning middle class consumers and growing international trade – it makes sense for us to formalize our close ties with our partners there”.
Bob Charlton, Managing Director for Asia Pacific added: “We are pleased to announce our alliance with IAB&F, a rapidly emerging business law firm that has proven experience in providing clients with insightful Indonesian legal representation and commercial acumen. The strategic alliance with IAB&F is a key component of our South East Asia strategy, which is led from our regional hub in Singapore.”
Ivan Baely, managing partner of IAB&F said: “We are delighted to join forces with DLA Piper and to be able to offer our clients access to a world class global legal platform. We know that our alliance will be a long and fruitful one and look forward to working closely with DLA Piper to provide preeminent legal advice”.
IAB&F joins DLA Piper as part of a large group of “relationship firms” – these are able to take advantage of the opportunities provided by our global platform.
