With 25 partners (including Indonesian and foreign counsel) and around 85 other fee earners, we are the largest independent, full-service law firm in Indonesia and one of the country’s top-three law firms by lawyer numbers, giving us the scale needed to simultaneously handle large and complex transnational deals across the entire practice-area spectrum.
We also have global reach as the exclusive Lex Mundi (LM) member firm for Indonesia since 1991. LM is the world’s leading network of independent law firms, with members in more than 100 countries. ABNR’s position as LM member firm for Indonesia was reconfirmed for a further six-year period in 2018.
