As one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, Vietnam continues to see steady inflows of foreign direct investment. Apart from being a global manufacturing and processing hub, Vietnam has also seen significant investments in real estate, energy production, and science and technology. With the continued growth of Vietnam, we expect even more opportunities for investors in Vietnam in the coming years.
Singapore has consistently been one of the main investor countries in Vietnam and a key jurisdiction through which foreign investors have invested into Vietnam and other South East Asian countries. Tapping on this and also Singapore’s position as an important hub in South East Asia and the world for legal services, we have extensive experience in advising clients on transactions and deals in Vietnam in a range of sectors including real estate, infrastructure and construction, e-commerce and hospitality. We have advised and acted for clients in various joint venture and acquisitions involving billion-dollar deals, the establishment of Vietnam real estate funds, and syndicated financing to state-owned banks in Vietnam.
With an in-house Vietnamese lawyer in our international arbitration practice and our strong connections with leading law firms in Vietnam, we have also advised and acted for both foreign investors and Vietnamese clients on a range of complex and high value Vietnam-related disputes both in international arbitrations and in the Singapore Courts, often involving issues of Vietnamese law.
