Tina joined the firm in 2013, and has been a partner since 2019. Tina has 15 years of experience in Vietnam. She specialises in private and public cross-border M&A transactions and international capital markets, including listings by Vietnamese issuers in the U.S. Her practice spans sectors including consumer and retail, manufacturing, fintech, education and insurance. She has been named as Next Generation Partner in Corporate/M&A, and Capital Markets by Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2022 (Vietnam). In her new role, Tina will focus on strategically growing the Vietnam office, strengthening the connections in Vietnam and continuing to deliver high-quality service to our clients.
Having joined the firm in 2013, Duc has over 25 years’ experience practicing law in Vietnam. He has long been recognized as one of the leading lawyers in Vietnam and has been ranked by Chambers Asia Pacific 2022 as a Band 1 lawyer for Projects, Infrastructure & Energy, Banking & Finance, Capital Markets, and Corporate/M&A in Vietnam. In his role as Senior Partner for Vietnam, Duc will work closely with partners to identify the firm’s growth strategy in ASEAN, including deepening its relationships with clients and key stakeholders in Vietnam.
Adam Moncrieff commented: “Our offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City have become a valuable part of our broader offering – we are one of the few renowned international law firms in Vietnam with multidisciplinary industry experience. We have created what is the go-to firm in Vietnam across our practice areas. I am honoured to be part of this journey and look forward to continuing to work with Tina and Duc to drive the success of the office.”
Duc Tran added: “Taking on the role of Senior Partner is a challenge and a privilege in equal measure. I am extremely proud of how our office has grown over the last few years, how we have invested in our people, and how we have cultivated a culture of diversity and inclusion. I am looking forward to working with the team to achieve continued success.”
“I am honoured to lead the Vietnam office as we celebrate ten years in the country,” said Tina LeDinh. “As a fast-growing economy in Asia, Vietnam is poised to create significant opportunities for our firm. I am excited to lead our high-performance team to keep delivering high-quality services.”
