Celebration of Assegaf Hamzah & Partners' Membership of the Rajah & Tann Asia Network
28 October 2014 marked another milestone in the growth of Assegaf Hamzah & Partners ("AHP"), with AHP celebrating being the Indonesian member firm of Rajah & Tann Asia Network, the largest network of law firms in Southeast Asia.
As part of the celebrations, 2 events were organised, starting with 2 seminar sessions in the afternoon, featuring speakers from Rajah & Tann Singapore and AHP as well as Faisal Basri and Burhanuddin Muhtadi. These seminars were followed by a gala dinner held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel Pacific Place, which featured a pan-Indonesia theme including food, drinks, entertainment and decor from various parts of the Indonesian archipelago.
The gala dinner was a resounding success, with over 300 clients, friends and supporters of AHP taking the time to attend the event. It was AHP's honour to be able to host the dignitaries and guests, which included Bapak Hamdan Zoelva, the Chief Justice of the Indonesian Constitutional Court, as Guest of Honour, as well as numerous Ambassadors, Indonesian government officials and captains of industry.
The opening speech during the gala dinner given by Bapak Ahmad Fikri Assegaf, the Managing Partner of AHP, was particularly meaningful as he brought the guests through the growth of AHP which, in a short span of just 14 years, has grown from a firm of just 2 partners and 6 associates, to what is now the third largest law firm in Indonesia, with approximately 90 lawyers including 17 partners, none of which would have been possible without the support of its clients and supporters.
As a member of the Rajah & Tann Asia Network, AHP is perfectly positioned to serve its clients, many of which are increasingly expanding its business activities beyond the boundaries of Indonesia to various parts of South East Asia and beyond.
