Distribution & Retail
About

Many businesses have made Vietnam the heart of their distribution networks, which has been supported by the Vietnamese Government’s commitment towards opening up the distribution and retail sectors for foreign investors. However, while investor interest in this industry is increasing, so is the complexity of the numerous laws, regulations and government by-laws that govern this field.

At LNT & PARTNERS , we have experience in navigating investors and businesses through this legal maze. Our lawyers have achieved success in obtaining licenses for distribution and retail of all types of goods and services, including those subject to some of the greatest restrictions in Vietnam.

We also provide ongoing legal support for businesses in view of the country’s ever-changing legal and business environment, including in matters of competition, licensing, corporate compliance, IP, labor and taxation.
