YKVN has a pre-eminent M&A practice in Vietnam and our lawyers are able to handle complex transactions with precision and speed. We have the knowledge, infrastructure, technical capability and strategic perspective that are invaluable in helping clients select, implement and coordinate their strategies in Vietnam. Our extensive experience in M&A and critical mass of lawyers in our offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City ensure local legal advice at standards essential for such transactions, and the economies that result from experienced, coordinated transaction management.
We are a recognized leader in M&A and the firm has advised on many landmark deals in Vietnam. We are advising Bank for Foreign Trade of Vietnam on its strategic sale of shares as part of its equitization process. This is the first equitization of a Vietnamese State-owned bank and will set a template for future large bank M&A transactions in Vietnam. We have also advised Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam and Industrial and Commercial Bank of Vietnam on the selection of financial advisors for their equitization process and are continuing to advise them on their strategic sales of shares. We are advising PetroVietnam Finance Company (PVFC) on its strategic sale of shares as part of its equitization process. This is the first equitization of a Vietnamese State-owned finance company and will set a template for future large finance company M&A transactions in Vietnam.
