Samantha has advised many clients on how to execute cross-border transactions seamlessly. She has over 15 years' experience helping clients with structuring and implementing complex investments and projects in emerging markets. Samantha currently advises on a broad range of corporate and finance matters in Vietnam and further afield in ASEAN.

She is known for delivering practical advice and completing transactions to international standards against a backdrop of often vague regulations in developing countries. In Vietnam, Samantha has worked on a number of large-scale and first-in-type transactions, including for financial institutions, in the area of public-private- partnerships and project development, and in connection with restructurings. From these experiences, she has developed a keen sense of how to navigate the uncertainties in this jurisdiction. Her industry experience covers agribusiness, banking and insurance, energy, heavy industry, ports and logistics and health/pharmaceuticals.

Samantha has been consistently nominated as a leading lawyer in Vietnam in Chambers Asia Pacific and in Legal 500 for the past five years.
