As an independent, full-service law firm, Assegaf Hamzah & Partners (AHP) advises on dispute resolution, including international arbitration, mediation and litigation, mergers and acquisitions, banking and finance, capital markets, competition and tax. The firm’s commitment to excellence in these practice areas has made it one of the fastest-growing law firms in Indonesia. Over the past three years alone, AHP’s size has nearly doubled to 117 lawyers from only 60. While size is not of great concern to the firm, it reflects the trust and value its clients place on the firm’s advice.

What sets AHP apart from its competitors and makes it a go-to firm for litigation and dispute resolution is its singular focus on integrity. Among the firm’s guiding principles, as stressed by one of its founding partners, Chandra Hamzah, is to uphold the highest standards of expertise and integrity in its litigation and dispute resolution practices. “This is a value we share with our clients,” Hamzah says.

AHP was named one of Indonesia’s top three law firms by Asian Legal Business in 2017

AHP has built such a well-known and respected reputation in its litigation and dispute resolution practices that its competitors often refer it to their foreign clients. For example, as a testament to its expert litigation team, a Swiss company asked AHP to represent it in Geneva before the Court of Arbitration for Sport. AHP credits such referrals to its in-depth experience working within the complex and often murky dispute resolution terrain in Indonesia that can be difficult for outside parties to navigate.

As a result of AHP’s integrity, expertise and experience, not to mention feedback from clients, the firm was named the Most Innovative National Law Firm of the Year at the IFLR Asia Awards 2018, and its practice groups and lawyers are consistently ranked as top-tier by industry publications.
