Baker & McKenzie Opens In Myanmar.

18 February, 2014


Baker & McKenzie has added to its coverage of emerging markets with the opening of a new office in Yangon, Myanmar, the Firm’s 16th in Asia Pacific. The Yangon office will be led by Chris Hughes, an infrastructure and corporate lawyer from Baker & McKenzie’s Sydney office.


“Clients are increasingly looking to Myanmar and South-east Asia for growth opportunities, particularly as the ASEAN nations work collaboratively towards achieving the ASEAN Economic Community by 2015,” said Eduardo Leite, Baker & McKenzie Chairman of the Executive Committee. “We are delighted to extend our service to clients with an on-the-ground presence in Myanmar and look forward to helping clients grow their businesses in Myanmar’s increasingly globally integrated economy.”


“Entering new markets, especially frontier, high-growth markets, is challenging,” said Chris Hughes, Managing Partner of the Myanmar office. “We have six decades of experience advising companies doing responsible business in emerging markets. With our local knowledge and global experience and resources, we are well placed to serve the expanded base of international and Asian companies that are eager to invest in Myanmar. We are here for the long haul and look forward to working with Myanmar institutions, officials and regulators to lend our support to the country’s transition.”
