Yang & Co and Schnader. Formalize Representation Arrangement for Indonesia Related Legal Matters
JAKARTA and PHILADELPHIA -- Yang &
Co and the United States-based law firm Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP are
pleased to announce that they have formally established an association agreement
to U.S. companies and individuals requiring legal counsel in Indonesia and to
provide representation to Indonesian companies and individuals requiring legal
counsel in the United States.
Lawyers from Schnader and Yang & Co have worked together closely for the past 10
years representing clients involved in significant and complex international
transactions and litigation. The newly-established arrangement formalizes this
long-standing relationship and allows the firms to continue to effectively and
efficiently represent their clients.
The deep experience of Schnader and Yang & Co lawyers in successfully
representing Indonesian and U.S. companies in high-stakes international
transactions and litigation, combined with their association under this
arrangement, uniquely position these firms to satisfy the legal needs of
companies and individuals faced with difficult and significant legal issues.
"Indonesia is a dynamic, emerging market that has attracted significant foreign
investment in recent years, which is expected to continue at an increased rate.
With the potential for continued significant and rapid growth, we are very
pleased to formalize our long-standing relationship with Yang & Co," said David
Smith, chairman of Schnader Harrison Segal and Lewis. "This association allows
us to further serve both firms' clients there and in the U.S."
The impressive growth of the Indonesian economy and increasingly sophisticated
and international character of the Indonesian business community have resulted
in an increased demand for the services of lawyers capable of handling
international transactions and litigation involving both Indonesian and U.S.
companies and individuals.
"Schnader's depth and breadth of experience will be of great service to our
clients doing business in both countries," said Yang & Co Managing Partner
Marcia Wibisono. "For more than a decade, lawyers from our two firms have worked
together and developed an impressive track record of client service. With this
agreement, our clients now will have access to the impressive benefits that
working with Schnader can provide."
Kenneth R. Puhala, a partner in Schnader's New York Office, is the firm's chief
liaison with Yang & Co. Mr. Puhala has more than 10 years of experience
representing and advising Indonesian companies and individuals involved in U.S.
and international legal proceedings and transactions. Mr. Puhala also has been a
guest lecturer at the University of Tarumanagara Law School in Jakarta,
Indonesia. Under the firms' new arrangement, Mr. Puhala will spend a substantial
amount of time in Jakarta working closely with Yang & Co's lawyers.
