Testimonials

For an international conglomerate operating subsidiaries in Myanmar, we need (and expect) that practitioners have an international perspective and at the same time is in tune with the local pulse and practices, especially in an emerging jurisdiction like Myanmar. Excellent legal work aside (which should be a given and which Allen & Gledhill achieves with apparent ease), the Allen & Gledhill team excels in bringing the above to the table in assisting us to navigate such a challenging jurisdiction, where they bring to the table international savviness and local on-the-ground knowledge in a manner that other firms can only aspire to.’

Managing partner Minn Niang Oo is a stand-out individual who regularly and consistently delivers on all aspects of local corporate matters that we encounter in our structuring, licensing, daily operations, etc. He is friendly, responsive, enthusiastic, and overall just great to work with.
