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.
