ABNR Named ALB Indonesia Law Firm of the Year 2022


We are very pleased to announce that ABNR Counsellors at Law was named Asian Legal Business (ALB) Indonesia Law Firm of the Year 2022 at a glittering awards ceremony at Shangri La Hotel Jakarta on Thursday, Oct. 20. The annual ALB Indonesia Law Awards recognize the country’s best law firms, legal work and lawyers across all major practice areas.


Speaking about this latest recognition for the firm, ABNR Management Committee member Mr. Ayik C. Gunadi commented: “It’s really good to receive recognition like this for all the hard work our lawyers put in during the pandemic. We successfully managed to maintain the good client service that we believe we are known for, despite all the obstacles posed by Covid.”


Mr. Gunadi’s comments were echoed by fellow Management Committee member Mr. Nurdin Adiwibowo, who added that while Covid had undoubtedly caused disruption, ABNR had been able to continue expanding its business throughout the pandemic, in tandem with ongoing robust growth in the Indonesian economy.


Speaking about what the future holds now that the pandemic is on the wane, the third member of ABNR’s Management Committee, Mr. Emir Nurmansyah, commented as follows:


“We are Indonesia’s longest established law firm and have successfully weathered all manner of upsets since the firm was established back in 1967, including economic crashes and political instability. However, the dark days now seem to be safely behind us and, buoyed by the country’s experience in coping with Covid, we now look forward to a bright future for ABNR, and for Indonesia as a key member of ASEAN, the G20, and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).”
