A. Business Litigation
B. Corporate Governance, Risk Management & Compliance Services
C. Doing Business in Vietnam
LE & TRAN has received numerous commendations from multinational corporate clients referencing his work. A prime example is the endorsement from PETRONAS (Malaysia’s fully integrated oil and gas multinational ranked among the largest corporations in FORTUNE Global 500®) as follows:
“• COMPETENCY – From the interview during the selection of law firms for acting on behalf of PETRONAS, we view LE & TRAN as possessing core expertise in labor and IR matters, and has strong litigation background / strategic skills in providing legal opinion. In addition, LE & TRAN confirmed that it could provide speedy turn-around time which is a very important criteria for PETRONAS in the selection of a suitable law firm. Our first impression was that LE & TRAN readily provided a solution to the current issue presented and added value to our company as well as exhibiting reasonable legal costs / fees.
• PROFESSIONALISM AND ACCOUNTABILITY – During the first task given, it was observed that the head advocate and solicitor, Mr. Stephen (Le Hoang Chuong), is a highly motivated lawyer who exhibited a desire to achieve results above and beyond expectations for the best interests of PETRONAS. Mr. Stephen demonstrated, especially to our Malaysian colleagues, a higher standard of professionalism than most, both on a personal and professional level by promoting strong values, maintaining solid accountability for his words/ actions and never making excuses in managing any task given to him by PETRONAS. He accepts responsibility for the decision made and remains calm in a crisis or emergency situation.
• FOCUS AND EXECUTION – LE & TRAN proved to PETRONAS its ability to effectively execute tasks by showing a strong, unstoppable drive to push forward the completion of any assignment given. In addition, Mr. Stephen’s strength is his ability to understand and manage his client’s expectations which is crucial to achieve the desired result. Further, Stephen has the ability to confront others on any issues without fear of adverse arguments. He also realizes how to approach the client in a cordial, respectful, and honest way to address concerns.”
Whenever things don’t go according to plan, your business suffers and your energy gets wasted into solving a dispute instead of serving your customers. At LE & TRAN, we make sure that your concerns are heard, and we ferociously advocate and negotiate on your behalf so that you can go back to what you do best: running your business.
Labor laws and regulations are in constant transition in Vietnam, and they consist of a mixed bag of local regulations rooted in communist legal theory (generally pro-employee), and international treaty ratification (for instance, imposing the creation of labor unions). For foreign companies establishing a presence in Vietnam, it can be challenging to comply with all local labor regulations, even with the best intentions.
Whether you need proactive advice to bring your company into compliance in Vietnam, or you need effective negotiators and litigators to handle labour and employment disputes, we will work with you to drive the results you want.
