Leading firms Tier 1

An established name in the ASEAN region, DFDL has a full-service team in Phnom Penh and with language skills in English, Mandarin, French, Khmer, Greek and German, the Cambodia team is well-placed to handle significant cross-border corporate matters involving jurisdictions such as China, Singapore, and Western Europe. Jointly headed by Guillaume Massin and Chris Robinson, the practice group advises on the full range of corporate finance, tax, real estate, infrastructure and general business issues, and is unique in its ability to act as domestic and international counsel. In particular, the team's China desk, bolstered by the addition of two new Mandarin speakers, has been an important source of work and has secured the team instructions from active Chinese banks and project companies. Next generation lawyer Daniel Wein left Cambodia in 2018, but the team brought on a number of new senior consultants in 2019.

The firm

DFDL established a permanent office in Phnom Penh in January 1995, as the first officially authorized foreign investment advisory and tax firm in Cambodia.

We are also registered as a private limited company with the Ministry of Commerce. Under these licenses and registrations, we are permitted to provide business consulting and investment and tax advisory services of an international nature.

On 1 March 2016, DFDL and Sarin & Associates joined forces and established a commercial association and cooperation in order to form a new business transactions platform to serve clients with interests in Cambodia and across the expanding ASEAN marketplace.
