Jakarta-based LGS, launched in 1985, specializes in corporate and commercial litigation work. The two firms will act for Indonesian clients in the energy, infrastructure, maritime, and commodities sectors, among others.
The two firms began working together last year, according to Clyde & Co Singapore partner Michael Horn. In that time, they have handled disputes, compliance and regulatory matters, and some mergers and acquisitions within the aforementioned sectors, he says.
Clyde & Co’s association with LGS comes two months after it announced a joint law venture with Singapore firm Clasis in July. Clyde & Co said at the time that it’s tie-up with Clasis would increasingly serve as a hub for its Asia Pacific operations, which include Sydney, Perth, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing offices.
London-based Clyde & Co employs 1,400 lawyers in more than 30 offices worldwide.
