Allens is a leading international law firm with a long and proud heritage of shaping the future for our clients, our people and the communities in which we work.

From playing a pioneering role in the development of legislation and regulatory frameworks in the Asia region for almost 200 years, to acting on numerous ‘firsts’ across a range of industry and community issues, it is in our DNA to make a difference and help shape what our world looks like.

As a firm, we are privileged to hold some of the world’s longest ongoing client relationships, stretching back more than 170 years, and we’re committed to bringing our talent, expertise and insights to continue advising on complex issues and creating ways forward to help them thrive. New and exciting market entrants sit alongside these established companies in our client base, drawn to working with us through the innovative re-packaging of our services for the growing and fast paced start-up market.

In Vietnam, Allens is a leading international law firm. Our Hanoi office was the first licensed office of any foreign law firm in Hanoi (opening in 1993), with our Ho Chi Minh City office subsequently opening in 1997. Since then, we have acted on many of Vietnam’s most important large-scale projects and commercial transactions.

In Ho Chi Minh City, our Partners are Robert Fish and Linh Bui. Robert has worked extensively on cross-border financing, foreign investment and M&A deals into Vietnam for the past 13 years. Linh focuses on cross-border M&A transactions for foreign investors, including private equity investors, and has particular expertise in competition/antitrust law.

In Hanoi, our partners Melissa Keane and Giles Cooper specialise in all aspects of large-scale energy and infrastructure projects – including project development, financing, acquisition and construction. Key recent work includes advising on all aspects of Vietnam’s largest foreign invested project – the $9 billion Nghi Son Oil Refinery, as well as advising multinational companies, international private equity investors and financiers, and leading regional and Vietnamese companies on their investments across a range of renewable energy projects coming to market in Vietnam.

We are a full service law firm – advising across the complete suite of legal practice areas, including mergers and acquisitions, the development of large-scale energy, resources and infrastructure projects and complex cross-border banking and capital markets transactions. Our team of international and Vietnamese lawyers is renowned for our ability to examine transactions with both a legal and commercial lens, taking local issues and practice into account. The quality, depth and breadth of our service, coupled with our commerciality and on-the-ground experience, means we have the ability to progress transactions to success. In addition to our on the ground capabilities in Vietnam, the Allens international alliance with Linklaters, ensures that we can serve our clients throughout Asia and globally, wherever their business takes them, through a global network of 40 offices across 28 countries. The alignment of our complementary practices enables us to offer an integrated service to clients, with one point of contact, a unified team drawn from the best resources of each firm and consistent quality advice and support.
