About us

Company History

In 2014, Dr. Rémi Nguyen has moved to Myanmar to study Civil and Commercial Law and to understand the specificities of the legal system. During his Ph.D contract, he met and worked with U Tin Aye, a well-reputed Myanmar advocate and legal consultant based in Yangon.
Dr. Rémi Nguyen and Mr. Jeff Giné met during the course of their Master’s Degrees and studied together in France and in England. In 2016, Mr. Jeff Giné moved to Yangon to work as an in-house legal counsel in a Myanmar local company.

Ever since they started working in Myanmar, Dr. Rémi Nguyen and Mr. Jeff Giné, together with the extensive experience of Mr. Tin Aye, could observe in their own area of expertise that foreign companies needed a better knowledge and understanding of Myanmar Law and that mainly local business expertise was essential in order to expand their business. They also realised in the meantime, that local companies had to face new local rules and regulations, as well as comply with international standards.

Therefore, they decided to create a law firm with the ambition of helping and assisting local and foreign companies in their growth and managing their legal challenges.
