Press releases | 13 June 2024

On 5 June 2024, Hogan Lovells marked its 30th anniversary in Vietnam with a grand reception in Ho Chi Minh City. The celebrations continued into the next evening with a client appreciation event in Jakarta, Indonesia. The events were attended by representatives of our government, corporate and pro-bono clients, our regional leadership team, our lawyers, and business members, demonstrating the strong relationships and trust we’ve built over the years.

At the Vietnam reception, Vietnam Managing Partner Gaston Fernandez celebrated the firm’s long-standing dedication to Vietnam and the high quality of work we deliver for clients, including development finance institutions, multinational companies operating in Vietnam and the wider Southeast Asia region, and Vietnamese companies on the cusp of becoming internationally prominent as they expand to new markets abroad. Gaston said “Vietnam remains a key market for our diverse client network. While we celebrate the past 30 years, we also look forward to the future and the potential opportunities and growth that awaits us in the next chapter of our journey here in Vietnam.”

Hogan Lovells was one of the first law firms to establish a presence in Vietnam in 1994, following the re-establishment of trade relations between the U.S. and Vietnam. Now, 30 years on, it has one of the largest presences in the country among international law firms, with a team of almost 30 lawyers and Business Team professionals across two offices, in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.  

Speaking at the Jakarta event, Chalid Heyder, Office Managing Partner of Hogan Lovells DNFP, remarked: “Indonesia offers tremendous opportunities for growth and investment. We are committed to supporting clients in navigating these prospects.” 

As a vital part of Hogan Lovells’ global network, our teams in Vietnam and Indonesia, through our associated firm Hogan Lovells DNFP, are well-positioned to assist clients with cross-border matters. By collaborating closely with our offices in Singapore and throughout Asia Pacific and leveraging strong local relationships and keen market knowledge, we provide clients with first-class, comprehensive legal support on the ground,
