Welcome to Assegaf Hamzah & Partners
We are a full-service Indonesian law firm that was founded by Ahmad Fikri Assegaf and Chandra M. Hamzah in 2001. Since then, we have grown rapidly, gaining a reputation for innovation, commercial acumen, and for putting our clients at the forefront of all that we do. Currently with 15 partners and more than 55 associates, all of our members have extensive experience representing a wide variety of blue-chip corporate clients, high net worth individuals, government institutions and major public enterprises.
We are privileged to have represented a long list of prominent clients down the years, many of them leaders in their respective fields. Covering a broad spectrum of businesses and industries, they include companies in such key economic sectors as financial services, manufacturing, technology, energy, plantations, forestry and natural resources. The hallmarks of our success have always been our unique blend of commercial and legal insights, and our commitment to providing client-orientated services, apt and reliable legal advice, and rapid turnaround times.
We are ranked as a top-tier firm in many practice areas by The Asia Pacific Legal 500, Chambers Asia and other highly regarded legal publications, and over the years both our firm and partners have respectively been regularly recognized as ‘leading firm’ and ‘leading individuals’ in various fields.
As an Assegaf Hamzah client, you will gain access to our extensive expertise and experience spanning the entire range of practice areas, including capital markets, banking & finance, debt & corporate restructuring, mergers & acquisitions, projects & natural resources, competition law, dispute resolution, and telecommunications & media, to name but a few. You will also benefit from our capacity to work seamlessly across a wide range of industries and sectors so as to provide you with tailor-made, innovative, and holistic solutions that will help ensure the success of your transactions and business.
At Assegaf Hamzah, we not only offer the expertise one would expect from a full-service commercial law firm, we go one step further. As a relatively compact organization that continues to value the personal touch and to focus on individual client needs, we are able to provide cross-cutting advice that transcends rigid practice area divisions and specializations so as to ensure that you benefit from comprehensive solutions to your legal needs.
From the outset, we have been recognized for our creative and innovative solutions to client needs, which perhaps explains why we have become one of Jakarta’s foremost law firms in such a short space of time.
Assegaf Hamzah recently entered into a strategic alliance with Rajah & Tann, a Singapore-based law firm that is now the largest in Southeast Asia, with a network that includes offices or affiliates in Singapore, China, Thailand, Lao PDR, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia, and Myanmar, as well as regional desks focusing on Japan and South Asia. The tie-up significantly enhances Assegaf Hamzah’s capacity to provide top-class cross-border legal services and affords our clients access to an arsenal of more than 400 lawyers across the region.
Alongside our partnership with Rajah & Tann, we continue to work closely with a range of highly regarded domestic and international law firms on both Indonesian and overseas mandates so as to allow us to draw on international expertise and best practice across all leading jurisdictions. Rendering a full suite of legal and advisory services in Indonesian, English and Dutch, our lawyers pay particular attention to international legal developments and how these are likely to impact on Indonesia and your interests.
The firm’s growth continued apace in October 2013, when we merged with boutique competition practice Rizkiyana & Iswanto (one of only two Indonesian firms listed in Global Competition Review’s ‘elite category’), whose seven lawyers and economists, combined with the members of our existing antitrust practice, now make us the country’s market leader in competition law.
We are committed to the provision of quality legal services, and to maintaining the highest possible ethical and professional standards. Driven and talented, all members of the firm are focused on developing a comprehensive understanding of our clients, their businesses and their needs, and in assisting them maximize opportunities through efficient and effective legal advice and services.
