In Vietnam, finding a workable solution to a complex dispute can be challenging – litigation can be a complicated and lengthy process and the country’s arbitration regime has not yet formally developed to an international standard. Frasers’ team thrives on a challenge, and when resolving a dispute, we combine our commercial and legal experience to determine the best options for each client. Collaboration is key, and with our integrated team, we are able to consider a problem from a variety of angles, ensuring we achieve the best solution. We think commercially, and understand the importance of maintaining business continuity, and will work toward that end every step of the way.
