Vietnam is one of the hottest property markets at the moment and everything from individual buyers, to corporations and fund managers, want to invest here. But one should be careful and do thorough due diligence before taking any hasty decisions.
A preferred choice should be to hire a local conveyancing lawyer, before getting involved in deals with big transactions. The fact is that things aren’t as transparent and straightforward as you might be used to in developed countries.
Therefore I’ve written this article where I present some of the biggest and most popular conveyancing law firms in Vietnam.
1. Baker & McKenzie Vietnam
Baker & McKenzie is a leading multinational law firm worldwide. It was founded in 1949 in the United States, with its head office situated in Chicago. In terms of revenue, it is ranked as the second biggest law firm in the world, with annual revenue of USD 2.67 billion.
The company has 77 offices, more than 4,600 attorneys, and around 13,000 employees in globally (including 47 countries). They’ve had a presence in Vietnam for two decades and have two offices, one in Hanoi and one in Ho Chi Minh City.
There are around 45 persons working for the offices and several partners are foreigners, like Frederick R. Burke, an American national who is also a member of the Prime Minister’s Advisory Council for Administrative Reform in Vietnam.
