As a firm that believes in the power of inclusivity, Makarim & Taira S. has been empowering many women lawyers to grow and thrive in a field that has been historically men-dominated. Our most senior Partner, Rahayu Ningsih Hoed, who her friends and colleagues call, “Yayuk,” started her journey at Makarim & Taira S. more than 30 years ago as a paralegal and has developed to become one of the few most successful and highly ranked seasoned lawyers in the region. Rahayu’s tenaciousness and resilience, combined with her brilliance and determination, have taken her far and made her exemplary for many aspiring women lawyers.
We are proud to have made her extraordinary journey possible and that her accomplishments are being recognized by a prestigious legal publication, Asia Business Law Journal, which places her in the list of 20 top women lawyers across Asia. She shares her personal stories of success, strategy, struggle, and loss, providing those who follow her advice, a wealth of experience and encouragement.
