Indonesia has the fourth largest population in the world (an estimated 255 million people) and is one of the fastest growing emerging economies in the world.

Indonesia boasts a young, educated population with burgeoning ranks of middle class consumers and an increasing global trade flow. It is predicted that Indonesia could become the world's seventh largest economy by 2030 (up from 16th place in 2015). As a member of ASEAN, APEC and the G-20 group of nations, Indonesia has an increasing presence on the global economic stage.

Our Indonesia desk, primarily based out of Singapore, works very closely with lawyers across DLA Piper offices in Asia Pacific, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The growth and development of our Indonesia practice continues to be a firm-wide priority, and our dedicated desk is in recognition of our continued investment in Indonesia. Our principal Indonesia contact partners have worked and lived in Indonesia and have been actively involved in Indonesian matters, each averaging more than two decades of Indonesian experience.


Our team has represented state-owned and private enterprises, listed corporations, financial institutions and private equity funds on a broad range of matters. These include some of the most significant infrastructure projects, financings, debt restructurings, privatisations, capital markets offerings and mergers and acquisitions to have taken place in Indonesia.

Currently, international firms are not permitted to operate or open offices in Indonesia. However, we have long standing relationships with a number of local firms, allowing us to engage the strongest representation and experience as specific client needs dictate. We work with these firms on a frequent basis and know their capabilities and specializations.


In Asia Pacific, we have lawyers based in six countries. We are able to provide experienced support whenever you need it and wherever you operate. Our offices are located in Auckland, Bangkok, Beijing, Brisbane, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Perth, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and Wellington and include local and internationally trained lawyers who offer high-quality legal services and an understanding of global and local business requirements and cultural considerations.

We also have strong alliances and relationships with law firms located in Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, India, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Timor-Leste, Taiwan and Vietnam.
