Frans H Winarta sets out the strengths and growth areas of Frans Winarta & Partners

What do you see as the main points that differentiate from your competitors?

Our law firm is located in Indonesia's capital, Jakarta. This law firm has been established since 1981 and we always try to provide the best legal services for clients in the midst of the dynamic legal condition in the country.

We have expertise in various fields of law, among others: civil and criminal litigation, commercial arbitration and alternative dispute resolution, as well as corporate and commercial law, investment law, family law, labour and employment law, and intellectual property.

With a lineup of lawyers who are extremely clean in carrying out the work and abide by laws and regulations, we do not compromise with dishonesty, but continue to focus on improving the quality of individuals and teamwork in our law firm.

Which practice do you see growing in the next 12 months? What are the drivers behind that?

Since the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community, we are sure that the practice areas related to business and commerce such as construction, merger and acquisition, and intellectual property will grow rapidly. And the emergence of business disputes will be inevitable. This will stimulate alternative dispute resolution to be the best dispute resolution mechanism to our clients besides civil and criminal litigation. We hope in the future the development of the ASEAN Economic Community can provide a good effect for us in terms of dealing with cases entrusted by our clients.

What's the main change you've made in the firm that will benefit clients?

The lawyers in our law firm are law graduates from the best universities in Indonesia and overseas and have expertise in their respective fields. The increase in the provision of the best legal services has been done and will continue to be carried out in the future so as not to disappoint clients’ trust in us. We are known as a law firm with integrity and honest practice.

Is technology changing the way you interact with your clients, and the services you can provide them?

Advances in technology have helped us to interact with our domestic or foreign clients. With the advances in technology we are able to interact with clients from telephone and email to teleconference and video conference. This of course is done in the context of time and cost efficiency for the sake of the best legal services to clients.

Can you give us a practical example of how you have helped a client to add value to their business?

Our legal services not only provide solutions to the problems faced by the clients, but we also strive to give more enlightening (legal) advice by our best lawyers so that clients can have good alternative solutions for their business and bring good benefits for both parties, our law firm and the clients’ business in the future. We have also made every effort to protect the clients’ business and investment/interest.

Are clients looking for stability and strategic direction from their law firms - where do you see the firm in three year's time?

Clients are always looking for legal solutions from their law firm. So we have to understand exactly what is required by the client, so that we can provide the best legal solution. In the next three years, this law firm will continue to grow well in civil and criminal litigation, corporate and commercial law such as investment law, family law, labour and employment law, commercial arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution as well as intellectual property. We will always give good legal solutions in accordance with applicable regulations to the clients and also take advantage of technological developments so as to maintain good relationships with clients.
