Indonesia

We have a dedicated Indonesian team comprising partners and associates from our offices in Jakarta (Ginting & Reksodiputro in association with Allen & Overy) and Singapore who are experienced in advising on Indonesian deals.

No other law firm in Indonesia has the same level of integration with a top tier international firm. Ginting & Reksodiputro has access to the depth and breadth of Allen & Overy’s resources – this sets us apart from our competitors. This integration means that we are truly a one stop shop that can provide world class English/U.S./Indonesian law advice on a more efficient and effective basis than many other international firms who need to work with separate local firms in Indonesia.

Our international approach puts us at the top of people’s lists when it comes to complex, cross-border and challenging transactions in Indonesia.

Our five partner/foreign legal consultant team is comprised of Daniel Ginting, one of Indonesia’s leading lawyers covering the whole spectrum of advice; Harun Reksodiputro, a market leading corporate and M&A practitioner; Sugianto Osman, one of the foremost technology and private equity lawyers in Indonesia; Tarsis Halintar, a banking, PPP and finance specialist and Michael Tardif, a leading energy and major projects lawyer.

Our Indonesian offering is a core element of A&O’s broader ASEAN coverage which encompasses offices in Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam (which have local law capability) and Myanmar; and major ‘desks’ servicing Malaysia and the Philippines.
