WongPartnership Adds Indonesia To Network.

14 August, 2014


WongPartnership has forged yet another alliance in the region. This time it is with Indonesian law firm, Makes & Partners. Indonesia will be WongPartnership’s seventh regional country in its network. The alliance will expand the footprint of both firms into two markets in Asia. Makes & Partners has a reputation in the investment community for its strong mergers & acquisitions, capital markets, foreign investments, banking and restructuring and insolvency expertise. Headed by named partner Yozua Makes, the team features senior partners Iwan Setiawan, Irfan Ghazali and Fransisca.


“With the great investor interest in Indonesia’s dynamic market, WongPartnership has been acting in an increasing number of cross-border deals and we are excited to collaborate with a high quality, like-minded firm on these complex matters,” said Senior Counsel Alvin Yeo, Senior Partner at WongPartnership. “Our lawyers have worked alongside Makes & Partners on transactions, including Aberdeen Asset Management Asia Limited’s proposed acquisition of a stake in PT NISP Asset Management. We found a shared ethos of delivering unstinting high quality service to our clients.  Our alliance with Makes & Partners will enable us to leverage on their Indonesian law capability to serve our clients in the ASEAN region, whilst allowing their clients access to our regional expertise in China, the Middle East and the rest of ASEAN.”

“With ever increasing cross-border trade, Makes & Partners is excited to share and tap on the expertise that our alliance with WongPartnership will bring,” said Yozua Makes, managing partner at Makes & Partners. “Many investors are interested in Indonesia and likewise, many Indonesian corporates are also interested in expanding into the region, especially with the advent of the Asean Economic Community in 2015. We look forward to building on our close working relationships to tap on the flourishing business environment.”
