As Indonesia’s premier international legal services firm, Hadiputranto, Hadinoto & Partners (HHP Law Firm) advises many of the world’s leading institutions on domestic and cross-border issues. This includes advising on infrastructure projects related to China’s “Belt and Road Initiative”, where HHP Law Firm represents Indonesian and Chinese state-owned companies.

“Infrastructure and renewable energy investments will be a key driver of our country’s economic growth for the next few years”

The project attests to the firm’s continuous growth, which seems to parallel Indonesia’s developing economy. “I think infrastructure and renewable energy investments will be a key driver of our country’s economic growth for the next few years. These are also the areas where our firm continues to grow our capability and capacity so that we can better serve our clients’ growing needs,” says Timur Sukirno, managing partner. HHP Law Firm specialises in providing sophisticated advice on corporate and commercial transactions, including mergers and acquisitions (M&A), foreign direct investment and key legal consultancy across industries.

The country’s Investment Coordinating Board recorded that China was Indonesia’s fourth-largest foreign direct investor in the first quarter of this year, with about US$700 million worth of foreign direct investment in Indonesia.

“Our depth of knowledge in the nuances of law and business enables us to guide our clients, primarily multinational companies, state-owned enterprises and major Indonesian companies,” Sukirno says. Strong government relations and its alliance with international firm Baker McKenzie have been HHP Law Firm’s key competencies in helping clients solve complex legal problems across borders and practice areas.

The country’s first wind power purchase agreement for the 70-megawatt Sidrap Wind Farm project, which has become the model for future wind projects in Indonesia, is a pioneering example of the firm’s accomplishments in the energy and infrastructure sectors.

The firm has been voted Indonesia’s “National Law Firm of the Year” by Chambers Asia-Pacific Awards 2018 and “Indonesia Law Firm of the Year 2017” by Asian Legal Business.

“Our longevity and accolades show how our clients believe in our expertise,” says Helmy Handoko, senior business development and marketing communication manager.
