This key Group was formed in response to increasing demand for full legal services, including litigation/arbitration/bankruptcy, from our commercial clients, who were compelled by the economic crisis to initiate legal proceedings in enforcing their rights. One of the Group’s main objectives is to avoid litigation, arbitration or bankruptcy becoming necessary, but once it becomes inevitable the Group can assist and represent clients in: drafting demand notices; assisting clients in filing police reports and examination in the police proceedings; drafting and filing trade, bankruptcy, employment, criminal, civil, state administrative and/or religious pleadings; appearing in district, commercial, industrial relations, religious and/or state administrative courts; representing creditors or debtors at creditors’ meetings in bankruptcy and/or suspension of payment hearings; appearing before arbitration tribunals; filing and appearing in appeal proceedings; filing and appearing in cassation proceedings; requesting judicial reviews; and negotiating with opposite parties at any stage of the proceedings.
The Group consists of the Firm’s licensed litigators, who can find themselves working closely with members of any of the other practice groups, depending on the nature of the case. As all evidence presented in the Indonesian courts must be in the Indonesian language, the Group’s work is supported by the Firm’s in-house team of translators (a native speaker of English assisted by native speakers of Indonesian) who cross-check each other’s work to ensure that translated evidence presented in court does reflect the meaning of the original. The Group has handled civil, commercial, arbitration, family, industrial relations, state administrative, arbitration, and criminal cases on behalf of Indonesian individuals and entities, and foreign individuals and entities.
