Firm Fact Sheet



VILAF is one of Vietnam’s oldest, largest and most highly regarded full-service law firms. Two strengths developed during our formative years provide us with unique capabilities to serve foreign companies investing and operating in Vietnam.

First, VILAF began as a small group of lawyers initially working with Clifford Chance from 1993 until 2000, endowing us with an international outlook and experience from the start – a strength that has only grown over the past 20 years as we’ve worked with many of the world’s largest multinationals in Vietnam, including Ford, Philip Morris, Bunge, Shell, BNP Paribas, Citibank, SMBC, SCB, ANZ, Mizuho, BTMU. The firm also has lawyers qualified to practice in other countries, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan, Korea and the Philippines, and who have gained extensive experience in international legal practice.

Second, several of our senior lawyers worked closely with the Vietnamese Government in the development of the country’s business and foreign investment laws, giving our firm with unparalleled insight into the legal regimes governing multinational companies doing business here.

With this extensive international experience and in-depth knowledge of the country's political culture and legal development, our lawyers are in the best position to advise clients on the law as well as legal and business practices in Vietnam.

Also, uniquely VILAF is our practical approach to assessing risk and developing effective solutions designed to meet our clients’ business objectives. We cut through complexity to provide clear and insightful answers.
