Welcome for the Second Edition of the Budidjaja & Associates (B&A) Newsletter 2014!
What an exciting year 2014 has been for Indonesia so far. The biggest highlights include the elections in April for national, regional, provincial and regency legislatures, as well as the election in July of Joko Widodo (“Jokowi”) as the next President of the Republic of Indonesia. The fact that the elections were held without any real issues demonstrated that democracy is alive and well in Indonesia. This is a clear indication that the future of business in Indonesia is bright and progressive.
As we complete the first semester of the year, we are proud to tell you that B&A becomes the first and only Indonesian Law Firm Member of TAGLaw, an International Alliance of Independent Law Firm. In July, B&A accepted an invitation to join TAGLaw which reflects the strong international reputation that B&A holds as a provider of high quality legal services. As the only Indonesian law firm in TAGLaw, we and our clients are now able to access local legal services in over 80 countries across the world.
Now more than ever, B&A prides itself on being a full service law firm with the experience and ability to fulfill a client’s business needs. As we work towards our 8th anniversary, B&A will continue to explore new ways of becoming a superior law firm. As evidence of B&A’s increased prominence in the legal and business world, the firm has been honored by being mentioned and highlighted in a number of prestigious international legal surveys including: Benchmark Asia Pacific, Global 100, IFLR 1000, and Who’s Who Legal.
Taking this opportunity, we are proud to announce that effective July 1, 2014, Ms. Juni Dani assumed the position of Principal at B&A.

We do hope that you enjoy reading this Newsletter as much as much as we enjoyed putting it together for your benefit. You will find stories on some recent events we were involved in, information on upcoming events, and some general news about the firm. We also have some articles on recent developments of Indonesia law which we hope you will find them interesting and valuable.
In closing, let us invite you to provide feedback on this and our future Newsletters. We are always looking at ways of improving our Newsletters, and your views would be most welcome.
