Allens is a leading international law firm in Vietnam and a well-established part of the business community. Our Hanoi office was the first licensed foreign law firm office in the country and has been operating since 1993. Our Ho Chi Minh City office opened in 1997.

We currently have four resident partners in Vietnam. Bill Magennis and Hop Dang have both practised in Hanoi for many years (in the case of Bill Magennis, for close to 20 years) and both have extensive experience in advising on large-scale projects, M&A transactions and dispute resolution. Partners Robert Fish and Linh Bui are based in our Ho Chi Minh City office. Robert specialises in corporate, M&A and banking and finance. Linh specialises in M&A, corporate law and banking & finance, and has extensive experience in anti-trust matters.

Our team advises clients on all legal aspects of investing and doing business in Vietnam, including: real estate; construction; banking and finance; corporate; foreign investment; mergers and acquisitions; employment; dispute resolution; and tax.

We employ a number of experienced foreign and Vietnamese lawyers who assist in advising on matters of international and Vietnamese law. As a result, we offer a ‘one-stop shop’ in Vietnam on all legal matters.
