Private Share Placement in Vietnam

Ever since the stock exchange opened in the late 1990s, the procedures for private share placement in Vietnam have been divided between public companies and privately held companies. For publicly held companies the process has always been somewhat onerous in an effort to dissuade them from conducting private share placements. It has always, however, been [...]

Choice of Law Rules for Contracts in Vietnam

When I first started practicing in Vietnam over ten years ago, it was assumed that the law governing the contract would--if at all possible--be foreign law. Vietnamese law was little developed, then, and foreign law was deemed more likely to contemplate potential issues arising. This, of course, neglected issues of dispute resolution and enforcement which [...]

The Facts about CISG in Vietnam

Freedom of Contract in Vietnam

If you read last week's blog post, here, about bankruptcy in Vietnam you might have picked up on the possibility of further discussions of the issue in relation to the court's actual behavior in the bankruptcy process.

Restructuring Debt in Vietnam

I'm excited. As of a couple of hours ago, Vietnam has gone over 40 hours without a new case of Covid-19. That means it took only a month for the country to effectively control a second outbreak of the virus. Here's to hoping the trend continues. But with that in mind, there is a lot [...]
