Firm Profile

Makarim & Taira S. grew rapidly into an internationally recognised, full-service practice, with an impressive range of household names on our client list. We deliver real world business solutions, based on our in-depth understanding of the complexities of operating in a rapidly evolving Indonesia.

Long considered one of Indonesia’s leaders in Corporate and Banking/Finance practices, we’ve been recognised for our work on high profile infrastructure and power projects as well as financing. Our experience and expertise in Litigation and Dispute Resolution are also broad and we have advised high profile clients in the area.

Integrity is important to us. We provide cutting edge advice that gets results, but we never expose our clients to unacceptable risks and this is why our business relationships are so longstanding. Clients stay with us because we give them practical solutions they can trust.

Our expertise is also sought by the Indonesian government, which has invited M&T to provide advice on a number of key legislative developments. This means we have unique insight into the evolution of Indonesia’s legal environment insight which means we can anticipate changes and protect the business interests of our clients. We are fully committed to the future prosperity of both Indonesia and our clients.

We have been here for more than 40 years and remained independent, and many international law firms trust us when they need people who know Indonesia, and a team that delivers. We’re here for good and our heritage is proof.
