Allens is a leading international law firm with partners, lawyers and corporate services staff across Asia and Australia. Through an integrated alliance with Linklaters, Allens’ network of market-leading lawyers spans 36 offices across 27 countries, also providing clients access to emerging markets in Africa, Asia, India and South America.

In Vietnam, our Hanoi office was the first licensed office of any foreign law firm in Ha Noi, opening there in 1993. We opened in Ho Chi Minh City in 1997.

Allens is a well-established part of the Vietnamese business community. We currently have three 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. Robert Fish heads our Ho Chi Minh City office, and specialises in corporate, M&A and banking and finance.

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.
