Vietnam > Corporate and M&A

Hogan Lovells International LLP has a longstanding presence in Vietnam, and its team is notably strong in advising European and US clients on their business activities there. Senior associate Long Huynh, who is based in Ho Chi Minh City, handles matters relating to areas such as healthcare, oil and gas, and real estate, among others. He has been advising foreign investors on entering the Vietnam market since 1998. Although practice head Jeff Olson has moved to an in-house role, the firm is able to leverage the expertise of practitioners across the wider regional network; key contacts include Singapore-based partners Samantha Campbell and Stephanie Keen. Gaston Fernandez relocated from the Miami office to Ho Chi Minh City to lead the firm’s Vietnam offices.

Singapore > Energy: foreign firms

Hogan Lovells Lee & Lee‘s Singapore office is the firm’s Southeast Asia and South Asia hub for energy and infrastructure work. The team is particularly known for solar, wind and LNG-to-power projects. The team has an especially prolific record in Vietnam and is noted for its presence in Taiwan’s offshore wind sector. The group is also working closely with colleagues in Europe and Australia, to position itself as a leader in hydrogen projects. Samantha Campbell is a key name for Vietnam and Mekong region engagements in the LNG, solar and wind segments. Alex Wong has a rounded energy practice and is a pivotal figure in Taiwan’s offshore wind sector and broader Singapore projects, along with additional engagements from Taiwanese clients in projects outside of the jurisdiction.
