Myanmar is an important market for DLA Piper and we are committed to providing our clients with the best possible assistance there. Our team draws upon our business sector experience as well as best international practices to ensure high quality service.

Our Myanmar practice comprises a team of lawyers from international offices with experience in corporate and commercial, project finance, energy and natural resources, real estate, hospitality and leisure, intellectual property and IT, engineering, construction, infrastructure, transportation and insurance as well as compliance matters. We also have significant experience with Myanmar's laws, customs, language, culture and politics.

We work closely with local legal counsel and consultants in Myanmar to provide our clients with international legal advice, as well as advice relating to aspects of local law and regulatory issues that arise from doing business there.

Clients include multinational corporations, financial institutions, investment companies, private equity funds and insurance/reinsurance companies as well as international hotel chains and operators. This supports our position as a foreign practice with solid industry-focused Myanmar experience.


DLA Piper has a long history of advising clients across the ASEAN countries of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. From several of our offices in Asia, we routinely advise on cross-border projects and assignments covering various ASEAN countries. In those locations where we do not have an office presence, we routinely partner with local counsel to ensure that all legal services are delivered seamlessly with the same high quality, efficiency and proactive approach that we provide firmwide.


Based in our Bangkok office, DLA Piper’s Myanmar-Cambodia-Laos Desk services clients’ legal needs in those three countries. The desk is staffed by a team of international lawyers from Bangkok, Singapore and the firm’s other global offices with broad experience in a range of sectors and practice areas in Southeast Asia and elsewhere.
