Myanmar attracted $1.4bn amount of foreign direct investment


We are not just commentators but have real deal experience in Myanmar, having advised on many ‘first-to-market’ deals. With Real Estate, transport and infrastructure being at the centre of what we do, we provide a full service offering across the entire life cycle.

We have recently opened our first office in Myanmar, headed by resident partner, Chris Hughes, a highly respected emerging markets transactional lawyer.

How we can help: 

  • Advising 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 – some of the first ground-breaking foreign investments into Myanmar post the new Foreign Investment Law.
  • A strong team of lawyers and consultants who are based in Yangon and regularly in Naypyidaw, who understand the legal and political landscape.
  • Deep understanding of doing business in Myanmar is critical when structuring clients’ investments, mitigating risk and ensuring regulatory compliance.
