Makes & Partners is an independent, innovative and creative Indonesian law firm and a leader in the Indonesian integrated corporate finance and corporate commercial legal services market. We provide high quality, aggressive, dynamic and innovative services to our Indonesian and international clients. The market recognizes us as a strategic leader for integrated commercial business and legal solutions. Since our inception, we have adopted and inculcated the philosophy: “solving a legal problem means more than knowing the law”, to achieve a result-oriented commercial approach and high completion rate for our transactions.
We adopt a practical business approach in our deals to provide meaningful legal solutions to our clients. From our establishment in 1993, we have maintained solid relationships with the government, as well as legal and business communities in Indonesia. We work closely and continuously with government agencies relevant to corporate finance, capital investment and mergers and acquisitions practices to devise effective and practical advice. Among others, we are actively involved in a number of high profile capital market, mergers and acquisitions, privatization and divestment transactions.
We are also recognized by the market as a law firm with extensive knowledge and experience in strategy formulation and contract negotiation. We are proud of our more than 95% completion success rate for transactions handled, this is largely due to the strategic legal structures, negotiation tactics, and innovative and detailed approaches we adopt in complex deals. In many transactions, our role has been extended to transaction counsel to the parties as a consequence of our recognized track record and our ability as competent mediators.
Always a forward thinker, we welcome the era of greater ASEAN and Pan-Asian economic cooperation and integration with leading Singapore firm, WongPartnership LLP (“WongPartnership”). In partnership with WongPartnership, we also launched a litigation and dispute resolution practice, to assist our clients in the full spectrum of their legal needs both in Indonesia and overseas, to be delivered with the same level of proven quality and excellence.
