What we can offer

Innovative solutions for complex financing transactions

Indonesian finance regulations can pose challenges that significantly affect deal value. Having acted for both lenders and borrowers, or as transactional counsel on numerous deals, we draw on unique insight to develop creative and effective strategies for negotiation, compliance and risk management. We have helped structure and close pioneering financial transactions in numerous local and cross-border transactions.

We can work seamlessly with our foreign legal counsels located at the world’s largest financial centers and key emerging markets, and can help you simplify complexity wherever you execute transactions. We represent sponsors, corporate entities and financial institutions, and advise lenders and borrowers at all stages of transactions — from origination, negotiation and documentation to closing.
