New Law Office in Myanmar

New Delhi LAWorld member, Kundra & Bansal, has made its way across the border to Yangon, Myanmar. Using the name Kundra & Bansal Acupro, this new law firm in Myanmar is the first Indian law firm to do so. They are also among a handful of non-local law firms to have an office there.  

Kundra & Bansal Acupro offers a diverse range of legal and tax consultancy services. The firm's Myanmar-related expertise is expected to give its clients access to specialist advisory services.  Asian Development Bank's  recent analysis  shows that Myanmar has the potential to follow Asia's fast-growing economies and expand at 7 to 8 per cent if it continues on the path of across-the-board reforms.

Shivendra Kundra, Partner, Kundra & Bansal, New Delhi, took the initiative of setting up the firm's practice in Myanmar after a seven month stint with a leading  telecom tower company in Myanmar that has investments by a telecom guru and one of the largest private equity funds from the United States.
