Asian Legal Business Southeast Asia Law Award
“DFDL was founded in 1994 in Vientiane with a unique vision: to build a leading integrated international law firm that offers investors an innovative combination of international-standard services, on the ground experience in the frontier markets of Asia and special technical excellence in core areas particular to developing countries.
Since then, our firm has expanded its presence in Asia, with over 250 staff, including more than 120 lawyers in 12 offices in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. This award affirms our firm’s founding strategy. Our nearly 20-year presence in the emerging markets of Southeast Asia and our talented local teams have permitted DFDL to meet successfully the growing needs of our clients in this region and to accommodate the increased interest from the international business community in this part of the world.
We are very proud to receive this award; we dedicate it to our teams and clients, and we thank them for their trust,” said L-Martin Desautels, Managing Partner.
