What you can benefit from

Having in-depth experience working in Myanmar, we understand the legal nuances and challenges you may face. Helping you achieve your business objectives is what we strive towards to. We offer:

Deep understanding of Myanmar

We understand the legal and political landscape and have a deep understanding of doing business in Myanmar.  This is critical when structuring clients’ investments, mitigating risk and ensuring regulatory compliance.  In addition, members of the team have worked on the drafting of the proposed new Myanmar Companies Act.  The process itself has been praised as one of the most open and comprehensive legislative reform processes in Myanmar to date and we will be undertaking ongoing capacity development work as the law is implemented. 

Myanmar Investment Law (MIL) experts

We are assisting the MIC and IFC in drafting the new Investment Rules, necessary for the implementation of the MIL.  Having such insight into the new Myanmar investment framework will ensure that the best approach is taken in establishing your project in Myanmar.

Real deal experience

We are not just commentators; we have real deal experience on-the-ground.  We are advising various regional and international MNCs on their investment strategies into Myanmar and their day-to-day operations as well, including relations with regulators, counterparties and employees.
