True regional experience
With an established presence in the region of nearly 30 years, and a team of local and international professionals who are backed by Gide’s international network, we are able to deliver a unique mix of local market knowledge and global, cross-border expertise to our clients.

Our lawyers are highly experienced at local and international levels and are qualified in English, New York, French, PRC and Vietnamese law.
