Thompson & Knight attorneys are actively engaged in Asia, first following the demands of our energy clients, and subsequently building our practice to advise clients on matters as diverse as financial services, manufacturing, real estate, derivatives, trade, and environmental legislation. Our attorneys represent clients investing in Asia as well as Asian clients investing in the U.S. and around the globe. Among other places, we have assisted clients in Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, China, Japan, India, Korea, and Mongolia.
We have advised several Asian national oil companies and other large energy companies on groundbreaking transactions, oftentimes leveraging our strong experience and offices in Latin America and North Africa. In addition to oil, gas, and energy matters, we have represented Asian clients with semiconductor patents and technology licensing, product and technology joint development agreements, contracts, outsourcing transactions, and dispute resolution, among other matters.
We appreciate that doing business in Asia requires a mixture of legal know-how, commercial experience, and cultural understanding. We have the capabilities, capacity, and comprehension to ensure the smooth coordination of any transaction.
