Bird & Bird enters Indonesian market with two local firms
Bird & Bird has expanded into Indonesia by allying with two Jakarta-based law firms. IP boutique K&K Advocates and five-partner firm Nurjadin Sumono Mulyadi & Partners have concluded cooperation agreements with Bird & Bird, giving the latter firm access to key sectors of the market.
“The introduction of the ASEAN Economic Community has accelerated client expectations and in turn created a strong demand for Bird & Bird’s services within the participating countries and in particular within Indonesia,” said Justin Walkey, Bird & Bird’s Asia Pacific chairman.
Chief executive David Kerr added: “The Indonesian economy is fast moving into a new consumer led development phase which has resulted in a growing demand for high-quality, international advice in areas where technology and regulation are driving change.”
