Passionate lawyers, Vietnam experts

A passion for law

We love being lawyers. At Asia Counsel, we set out to practice law as it was meant to be: as trusted, frank and reliable advisors that have their clients’ interests at heart. We are passionate about the work we take on and actually think that working with our clients can be fun.

We are driven by our commitment to exceptional service and high professional standards and take pride in seeing your projects develop in Vietnam.


Our approach to working with you is hands-on, commercial and relevant to your objectives and projects. We make the law simple where possible but are likewise experienced in tackling the most complex structures. As international lawyers with more than a decade’s worth of experience in Vietnam, we combine compliance and completion and are deeply familiar with Vietnam’s ever-changing legal system and deal practices. With a team of 12 international and local legal professionals in Vietnam, we assist multinationals, private equity funds, financial institutions and large cap Vietnamese companies – with the occasional start-up thrown in for good measure.
