Duane Morris Makes Vietnam Presence Official

Duane Morris talked to The Legal in January about opening up two offices in Vietnam by the spring of 2007, and the firm made good on that plan today.

Duane Morris now officially has a presence in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, focusing on corporate finance, project finance, energy, cross-border transactions, restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, real estate and telecommunications.

This expansion follows the firm’s establishment of a Singapore office in January.

Partners Christopher Muessel and Oliver Massmann and counsel Giles Cooper will work out of the two offices and service clients from Cambodia, China and Taiwan, India, Thailand,

Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam, the firm said.

Duane Morris Chairman Sheldon Bonovitz said Vietnam is strong in the manufacturing, information technology and high-tech industries and has a heavy investment concentration from Singapore and other countries in Asia, as well as from the United States.
