The Asia Business Law Journal (ABLJ) just issued a comprehensive report on various measures of governments across Asia to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. The measures have forced them to resort to strict lockdowns at one hand, but on the other have brought their economies to a standstill, which in turn, have presented a twin challenge: a health emergency coupled with an economic crisis. Given the unprecedented nature of the crisis, policymakers have resorted to a variety of fiscal and policy measures, some are ad-hoc, some may be here to stay. As reported by ABLJ,  making sense of these changes is a challenge in itself, especially for businesses that operate across markets in Asia.

To help the readers to understand the changes, the report covers multiple jurisdictions, from Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam to Indonesia.

Walalangi & Partners is among the law firms quoted and trusted by ABLJ to elaborate the hurdles, the “new normal” and the silver lining of the COVID-19 pandemic In Indonesia (link of the coverage can be found here: https://www.vantageasia.com/gloves-punches-fight-covid-19/.). Trust this is useful to understand the major changes made within those jurisdictions during these challenging times.

We are very proud of our senior associate Mr. Hans Adiputra Kurniawan, who was recently recognized as one of the top 10 rising stars in Indonesia’s legal market by Asian Legal Business (ALB). Hans richly deserved the recognition after successfully representing Showa Denko K.K. on the structuring of PT Indonesia Chemical Alumina (ICA), a company with annual production of 300,000 tons of chemical grade alumina (CGA) and annual sales of US$ 200 million.

He is considered by ALB as one of the best young professionals in the Indonesian legal market and was quoted by ALB as explaining the basic considerations for young lawyers to choose a law firm: working culture, financial compensation and personal growth. Previously, ALB had also put him on the list of Asia’s 40 outstanding legal professionals under the age of 40 (Asia’s Best Young Lawyers in the ‘40 under 40’ list).

We thank all our clients for their great trust. This is truly another unmeasured blessing for W&P.
