Story about Apolat Legal

Innovation – Effective – Professional

Apolat Legal is a local law firm with head office in Ho Chi Minh city. Our experience, our depth of local, and English-qualified lawyers help our clients work with confidence in any legal issues. By thinking on behalf of our clients every day, we anticipate what they want, provide what they need and help our clients achieve their ambitions.


We are a full service commercial law firm practising in Vietnam. Our clients rely on us to provide them with innovative commercial and legal advice which is of the highest international standard and practical in a Vietnamese context.

Unlike the legal systems in the world, in the legal system of Vietnam, the gap between the law and the reality of applying law is relatively large. This matter requires the lawyers in Vietnam both to understand the law and catch the managing policy (in written or unwritten) of the State of Vietnam. We have the lawyers and jurists who have high skill, much experience and be able to evaluate legal risks for the clients in Vietnam and provide realistic solutions in order to eliminate or reduce to the maximum extent of such risks.

Global coverage in today’s market does not simply mean having offices in important cities around the world. For us, it means combining our international resources and sector expertise to work on cross-border transactions directly in the markets and regions important to our clients.
