SSEK was formed in 1992 with a vision of creating a modern Indonesian law firm capable of delivering legal services at the highest international standard. SSEK has almost three decades of experience helping multinationals and domestic companies navigate Indonesia’s complex regulatory environment to minimize risk, maximize investment and achieve their business goals.
SSEK is described as a “high-caliber and sophisticated” firm that gives “thorough and effective advice” (Chambers Asia-Pacific).
Our attorneys combine the highest levels of local knowledge and international expertise. Our overriding priority is looking after our clients’ interests. We understand not only the legal environment as it affects clients but also their business and the business environment in which they operate.
SSEK’s experience enables us to anticipate and understand the government's position in ambiguous situations. Utilizing a significant network of contacts in government departments and agencies, and our extensive computerized database of Indonesian law, opinions, and work product, we are able to advise clients on likely government policy positions when laws and regulations do not provide clear guidance.
The amalgamation of skills and holistic focus means that many clients consider SSEK’s role to be not just that of a legal representative, but also that of a trusted partner – the first point of reference and a reliable source of guidance.
