M&A Law Practice:

We have successfully advised on some of the largest and most complex M&A deals in the region. Our expertise covers a wide range of sectors including communications, banking, insurance, energy, maritime transport, air transport, manufacturing, mining, plantation and property.

With our in-depth knowledge of general offers under the takeover codes governing the various ASEAN countries, we are well positioned to handle the many facets of a takeover. We formulate composite strategies from the start to the end – from the drafting of an offer, the planning of appropriate defences in the face of a takeover, right up to compulsory acquisitions and de-listing. We also structure M&As utilising schemes of arrangement, acquisitions of businesses and assets.

ZICO Law :

Some people believe that success is in the details. We agree. Slip-up on the details and the deal may well slip through your fingers. Through our network of strategically placed offices in Australia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, we keep a close eye on on-ground movements in legislative and regulatory trends, so we understand the nitty-gritty of what works, no matter where you are.

Combining local knowledge with a global approach, we’re focused on creating solid solutions, exclusively for you, taking care of you here and now, so you can grow in the long term.

In short, we’ll take care of the details so you can take care of growing your business, in-country, in ASEAN and across the globe.

Our focus has always remained the same: to promote regional expertise while maintaining local grounding.
