We have a strong track record of supporting domestic and international clients on their investments in Laos and Cambodia.

With a deep understanding of these markets and how to navigate their respective regulatory regimes, we are a firm of choice when it comes to acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures and the development and financing of major projects in these jurisdictions.

For example, we have been advised on almost every hydropower project that has been developed in Laos and we have developed a leading reputation from banks and sponsors for our ability to deliver outstanding advice and documentation on both the financing and project sides.

We have also advised on transactions in Cambodia across the energy, corporate, telecommunications, technology and infrastructure sectors to name a few.
