Vietnam, where international companies are increasingly looking to do business and local businesses are striking out internationally. 

Pinsent Masons can help. We know Vietnam and its legal system, we routinely work with respected local counsel, and we speak, read, and draft in Vietnamese. Clients coming to Vietnam have come to rely on the expertise and market understanding we provide.  

We work with clients building the next generation of manufacturing plants, employers and sponsors of major infrastructure works, including water and waste management and energy, as well other major development activity such as ports and vital transport links. 

We assist manufacturers to protect their intellectual property rights for their branded goods and services, from inception through to production, distribution and sales. 

In short, when doing business in Vietnam we can look after all your legal needs.
