The Vietnamese legal system is different from other legal systems to the extent that there is a wide gap between the actual law and the practice.
As a corollary, the lawyers in Vietnamese have to exhibit an up-to-date understanding of both the law and the policies (written/unwritten) formed by the Government of Vietnam.
Accordingly, the lawyers of SB are not only capable of identifying the actual legal risks faced by their international clients in Vietnam but also to propose practical solutions to mitigate and eliminate such risks.
Due to their long experience and the strong working relationship they have with the various Government agencies and State-owned companies, SB lawyers are very familiar with their methods and expectations.
