Kim & Chang has long been advising Korean companies on major projects related to investment in Indonesia in the areas of finance, manufacturing, energy and infrastructure based on various experiences, credentials and expertise related to overseas investment.

In particular, with a focus on the development potential of the fast-growing Indonesian legal market, we have recruited a number of experts with hands-on experience in Indonesia. Starting from March 2023, we have become the first Korean law firm to open its Indonesia Desk at SSEK Law Firm (Soewito Suhardiman Eddymurthy Kardono), a top-tier Indonesian law firm, and have sent one of our attorneys to Jakarta who specializes in overseas investment and Indonesian transactions to manage and operate the Indonesia Desk at SSEK.

Kim & Chang’s Indonesia Practice has the capacity to provide differentiated and comprehensive legal service to its clients by closely liaising and cooperating with the attorneys and experts in Seoul and providing customized and suitable solutions for each of its clients through maximum utilization of its vast expertise and resources in different industrial and legal sectors.
