Governance & Corporate Matters

Since our establishment in 1992, we have actively assisted our clients with a range of corporate-related legal matters. We understand that every business is unique, yet we believe that the main goal of all our clients is the same: a prosperous business. To this end we have continuously developed our capacity and networks to ensure that our clients receive the best legal assistance to realize their business goals.

  • Establishing a company (local and foreign) – to facilitate this we collaborate with renowned notaries to prepare deeds and assist in the process of company’s registration;
  • Obtaining the necessary licenses (general and operational) – to enable our clients to run their businesses properly and freely, we ensure that they are equipped with all the necessary licenses required by prevailing laws/regulations in Indonesia;
  • Assisting the client in regulatory compliance – after obtaining the necessary licenses, a company is required to fulfill all licensing obligations to avoid revocation of the licenses by the government. Our services in these sectors include preparing any required regular reports to officials;
  • Drafting corporate documents – we assist with the day-to-day operational documents, including preparing board and shareholder resolutions, amendments to a company’s articles of association, and assisting with the preparation of board and shareholders meetings;
  • Providing legal advice – with today’s business complexity, we provide our clients with the reliable and timely legal advice required for their decision-making.

We are also in step with the development of good corporate governance practices in Indonesia and, as a result, we have become one the first law firms in Indonesia to focus on corporate governance matters. We believe that every company has to impart good corporate governance principles to their company’s culture to ensure the sustainability of their business.

In addition, as the complexity of business operations have increased with globalization and open market access, the government needs to keep up with these developments, especially to enhance Indonesia’s Ease of Doing Business for all business players. Our firm believes that the public governance sector requires input from the private sector so that policy and regulations do not hamper business operations.

  • Corporate Governance - We have assisted public and private companies in preparing and reviewing their articles of association, internal standard operating procedures, and commercial codes. We have also assisted in reviewing and redrafting clients’ existing Board Manuals and BOD Charters. In addition, we have experience in preparing procurement and partner selection documents for clients acting as the project owner;
  • Public Governance – We provide feedback and input to government officials in the preparation of laws and regulations, ranging from governmental regulations, presidential regulations, regional regulations, and ministerial regulations.
The assistance we have provided our clients has been internationally recognized.
