LE & TRAN is a Premier Boutique Litigation Firm based in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam). Our practice is restricted to commercial litigation and arbitration (VIAC), and labour and employment matters.
LE & TRAN was founded in 2011 by Mr. Stephen Le Hoang Chuong, who left the prominent global firm Baker & McKenzie to focus his practice on litigation. Stephen has a very wide range of trial and appellate advocacy experience in a variety of fields, and has appeared as counsel at every level of court and arbitration tribunal in Vietnam.
Commercial and labor disputes can be disruptive, costly, and stressful. But they don’t have to.
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.
