We are delighted to announce that six ABNR lawyers have been named in the 2022 iteration of “Indonesia’s top 50 up-and-coming future legal leaders,” which was published recently by prestigious Hong Kong-based legal publication Asia Business Law Journal (ABLJ). This year’s list, which was prepared based on the collective views of in-house counsel and Indonesia-focused partners at international law firms, once again confirms ABNR’s position as a fertile breeding ground for top-class legal talent in Indonesia.


The six ABNR people on the list (and their focus practice areas) are partner Ms. Elsie Hakim (banking & finance, fintech, mergers & acquisitions (M&A) and foreign direct investment (FDI)); partner Ms. Serafina Muryanti (project finance & development, mergers & acquisitions (M&A) and foreign direct investment (FDI)); partner Ms. Ammalia Putri (project finance & development, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), foreign direct investment (FDI), financial sector regulatory & compliance and capital markets regulatory & compliance); senior associate Mr. Muhammad Muslim (maritime and shipping, foreign direct investment (FDI), and projects and energy; senior associate Mr. Bilal Anwari (competition, restructuring & insolvency, commercial litigation, arbitration and ADR, and anti-corruption and compliance); and senior associate Ms. Kartika Budianti (corporate/mergers & acquisitions (M&A), foreign direct investment (FDI), and capital markets.
