Anderson Mori & Tomotsune has expanded into Vietnam with the launch of an office in Ho Chi Minh City.
The new office, which opened its doors in May, is aimed at advising Japanese companies that want to establish and increase their business presence in Vietnam. It also serves Japanese and other foreign-affiliated entities that need local law advice on corporate, labour and employment, and other compliance matters.
Anderson Mori partner Yasufumi Miki is heading the new office. Having been previously seconded to Vietnamese firm Vilaf, Miki is well-versed in Vietnam-related transactions and has significant experience in banking and finance. He works alongside one Japanese qualified lawyer and one Vietnamese lawyer, who both have considerable exposure to investments in Asian jurisdictions.
Earlier in May, Anderson Mori also established a Jakarta desk in the office of Roosdiono & Partners.
