In FDI, he has assisted a long list of foreign investors in a variety of sectors to establish operations in Indonesia, including helping them with the complex FDI approval process in Indonesia, use of the country’s online investment licensing portal (OSS), and other regulatory and compliance matters.
In pharma and life sciences, he has specialised knowledge of pharma legislation and a well-grounded understanding of the industry. He advises leading multinational pharma companies on such issues as distribution, marketing and compliance. He was once seconded to a leading pharma multinational as its acting legal counsel.
