Driving Expansion

Driving Expansion

You have a revolutionary product or service. Consumers will love it. Competitors will fear it. And the market will never be the same. We would like to be the first to welcome you to our market—Southeast Asia.

We have helped vibrant companies introduce hip gadgets, alternative energy, original media, life-saving medicines, and creative software solutions to the growing consumer base in Thailand and Vietnam. With unique expertise in the high-technology and information technology sectors, we serve numerous new market entrants.    

We recently represented a leader in telecommunications software in rolling out mobile number portability (MNP) in Thailand. We assisted with all aspects of the deal, including developing an innovative and phased process for company establishment and the transfer of ownership to a U.S. parent company. This solution allowed our client to mobilize and commence operations quickly, which in turn allowed them to meet the deadline for product launch.

In Vietnam, we applied for and obtained an investment certificate for a rapidly expanding U.S. Internet company to set up shop and conduct business. We worked with the client to secure a local joint venture partner and structured the deal to allow the client to retain independence and control of the company.  The unique ownership structure enables our client to pursue its business objectives in an emerging market.

We secured an Alien Business License for the world’s leading travel reservation website, which is a landmark achievement in an industry that is normally reserved for Thai nationals. We also provided traditional business setup services for the client, including company formation and advice on structure and compliance. We helped our client overcome a previous barrier to market entry.

We advise a top digital media company on industry-specific issues including privacy, user consent, legality of advertisements, intellectual property rights, terms of use, and integration with and acquisition of social networking sites. Our clients leverage our in-depth industry experience to successfully commence and expand business operations.

Whatever your industry, we can help you enter new markets and grow your business in Southeast Asia. Read more about our capabilities in corporate services.
