In banking and finance/M&A, he advised South Korea-based Shinhan Bank on their acquisition of Indonesian lenders PT Bank Metro Express and PT Centratama Nasional Bank, and the two banks’ subsequent merger to form Shinhan Bank Indonesia.

In capital markets, where he regularly handles onshore equity offerings, Rully’s work has included advising one of South Korea’s largest lenders through its Indonesian company, PT Bank IBK Indonesia, on its Indonesia Stock Exchange rights issue, and advising DEG, a German based Development Finance Institution and a subsidiary of KfW Group, on its private placement in PT Bank Victoria Tbk and participation as standby buyer in PT Verena Multi Finance Tbk’s rights issue.
Rully has experience of a wide range of M&A issues, including advice on compliance, due diligence, structuring, document preparation, and execution. He assisted Amman Mineral group with their acquisition of the mining area owned by PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara (now PT Amman Mineral Nusa Tenggara).
In FDI, he advises on a wide range of regulatory, legal, and compliance aspects of foreign investment law in Indonesia, and on the practicalities of doing business as a foreign investor in Indonesia. His FDI assignments have included advising Aer Rianta International and Doosan Corporation on their investments in duty-free operations respectively at the international airport terminals at Soekarno-Hatta, Jakarta, and at Denpasar, Bali.
