FIDAL ASIATTORNEYS was founded by attorneys Albert Franceskinj and Caroline Chazard Meas, members of the Paris Bar, and the law firm FIDAL, member of the Nanterre Bar.

Albert Franceskinj and Caroline Chazard Meas have practiced in both Europe and Asia, and since 1997 and 2002 respectively, in Southeast Asia. They provide their international clients (SMEs, SMIs, MNCs) with international and domestic legal advice on their business operations and investments in Asia.

Our office is located in Ho Chi Minh City, the economic center of Vietnam, and a regional hub for SouthEast Asia.

With a combined advisory and litigation practice we take a comprehensive approach to business law which we believe is essential both to ensuring an overall understanding of the client’s interests and to accurately defining and implementing effective strategies tailored to the client’s needs and objectives.

Thanks to our team’s experience, we have in-depth knowledge and expertise in the following practice areas and industries:

  • Manufacturing (food, equipment, furniture, pharmaceuticals)
  • Land and real estate (construction and project development)
  • Healthcare
  • Distribution (of pharmaceutical and veterinary products, perfumes & cosmetics, luxury goods, retail)
  • Insurance
  • Banking and Finance
  • Tourism (development and operation of hotel projects, leisure activities, travel agencies) …

Our approach to the practice of law is focused on building close and trusting relationships with our clients.

In selecting and implementing legal routes, we apply a practical and sustainable approach aimed at providing the client with solutions that are:

  • Adapted to its specific situation,
  • Proactive, anticipating emerging needs and adjustable to changes in local legislation, and
  • Sensitive to cost control considerations.

Our clients include European and Asian companies as well as international and diplomatic organizations.

They all benefit from our international experience, our understanding of local laws and practices, our network of relationships within both business and governmental organizations, and our bicultural teams. They also benefit from the know-how and position of our partner, FIDAL, a top-notch law firm that is pursuing its goal of international expansion to be able to accompany its clients wherever their projects lead.

The lawyers of FIDAL ASIATTORNEYS and FIDAL will work closely with you, in France or abroad, to provide answers to the challenging questions that concern your business.
