In banking and finance, he regularly handles both onshore and offshore financing as well as asset securitization. Recent work includes assisting the International Finance Corporation in its USD150 million loan to an Indonesian state-owned bank; and international lenders in their USD2.05 billion financing for PT Indofood CBP Sukses Makmur Tbk.

Maher was a key member of the ABNR team that handled the Indonesian law aspects of M&A deals in various sectors, including: (i) advising on the merger of ride-hailing entity Uber’s Southeast Asia operations with Grab Inc. and (ii) advising Fullerton Health Group on investment from PT Pyfa Investama Medika in multiple healthcare facilities in Indonesia.

 

In FDI, Maher has advised on many aspects of doing business for foreign investors in Indonesia, including use of the government’s recently established online investment licensing portal (OSS), and regulatory and compliance issues.  His recent FDI assignments include advice to a UK company on how to establish a local waste processing company, and similarly to a French company for a local technical services business.
