A flourishing market with nearly 260 million people and a median age of 28, Indonesia ranks high on every global investor’s wish list. Legal entry barriers that are just as steep, however, pose a challenge so complex that partnering with a local law firm is not an edge, but a vital step towards tapping the market’s vast potential.
“Indonesia is a complicated marketplace with an equally intricate legal system and constantly changing establishment procedures,” says Adrio Rivadi, a partner at one of Indonesia’s most respected law firms Kusnandar & Co. “Clients come to us to learn the intricacies of doing business, but more so about the culture, its nuances and the means to navigate through them. As problem solvers, we enjoy being their first stop – and more often than not, their guiding partner throughout their growth here.”
The full-service law firm covers commercial, corporate and business practices, litigation, arbitration, mediation and intellectual property.
Acknowledged as one of the country’s 10 largest law firms, it is recognised by The Legal 500, Asialaw IP Awards, International Who’s Who of Professionals, Acquisition International, World Bank Group, Fellow of American Biographical Institute, Great Minds of the 21st Century, and the World Justice Project.
Kusnandar & Co also takes great pride in earning the trust of Fortune 500 companies, global investors and creditors who have come to rely on the firm’s comprehensive global networks, in-depth local wisdom and adaptability to evolving market trends.
E-commerce and related industries such as logistics, for instance, are booming amid Indonesia’s high internet penetration and young market, but most regulations are new and still in the grey area.
“Our integrated services – from investment, corporate finance and related litigation and alternative dispute resolution services including domestic and overseas arbitration, intellectual property and cyber law initiatives – ensure that any investor wanting to do business in Indonesia can take root here,” says partner Arno Rizaldi Setiawan. “They can grow confidently and securely, with Winita Kusnandar, as the founding partner in 1980, still very much in charge.”
