Founded in 2011, LE & TRAN Trial Lawyers was built upon integrity, diligence, and intellectual rigour. After nearly a decade of upholding our core values, our team of formidable attorneys has worked hard and smart to establish our place in the legal industry, national and international. A boutique litigation firm in Vietnam, LE & TRAN has been acclaimed for our exceptional services by over 50 multinational corporations and several renowned legal rankings.
Integrity is the foundational basis of LeTran’s professional conduct as well as the practice of our lawyers. It dictates our motivations, shapes our actions, and constitutes our reputation. Our roots in an honourable character allow us to stay grounded in legitimacy, professionalism, and effectiveness.
Business ethics guides legal solutions
We never resort to trickery when helping clients navigate legal challenges. Each of our legal advice and solution finds its basis in the code of ethics we uphold as legal practitioners and as businesspeople. With an emphasis on moral discipline, impartiality, and accountability, we trust that our ethical code will bring about the most stable and sustainable solutions to our clients.
Clients come to us because they find our culture of integrity compatible and our legal expertise reliable. Our anti-bribery policy lies at the heart of all our operations and activities. By opting to commit to a corruption-free code, we are able to not only protect our employees and our firm from penalties and reputational damages but also inspire confidence in legitimacy and empowering change. Accompanying our zero tolerance for bribery, our competence ensures that LeTran attorneys possess the right skills and mindset to fully comply with our clients’ corporate culture and the law whilst maximising our chance of winning.
Walk the talk
We are equally committed to our code of ethics and our clients. Rather than empty promises, we exercise transparency all in our correspondence and exchanges to our prospective as well as current clients. In other words, we do not advise or bind our clients to unrealistic solutions. On the contrary, LeTran attorneys are trained to provide in-depth, proper, lawful and confident analyses, to enable our clients to make informed decisions that coincide to their corporate culture and/or individual values.
Meeting client’s expectation
Clients entrust us with their legal matters because we offer reliable, valuable, and effective legal opinions and analyses. As seasoned attorneys, we make sure to listen to and prioritise our client’s concerns. Our flexibility and sensibility allow us to put ourselves in their shoes, to understand their needs and desires, to deliver suitable and highly efficient legal solutions. Head and shoulders above the rest, Le&Tran attorneys go the extra mile every time to exceed expectations: beyond achieving the client’s goals, we take time to tackle the matter from multiple angles, to suggest the most optimised resolutions, ones that are not necessarily obvious at first glance. Dedicated and trustworthy, our legal services guarantee compliance, honesty, and a high degree of success.
Courage, Creativity, Discipline, Perseverance
Success requires courage, creativity, good discipline, and high perseverance. As one of the most established boutique law firms in Vietnam, Le&Tran embraces innovation. Our attorneys are encouraged to have the courage to think differently, to pursue boldness, and to improve themselves daily. Savvy to the changes that are happening to the industry, we are capable of pinpointing market transformations and evolutions. Doing so empowers us to persevere with every challenge and help our client reach the most favourable outcome. Never straying from our commitment to novelty to move our practice forward wherever appropriate, Le&Tran attorneys uphold this discipline throughout their career at the firm.
Never stop learning
Aside from legal comprehension, we never cease to update our understanding on adjacent industries to best assist our clients. Relying on both our knowledge of the law and of our clients’ business mechanisms and cultures, professional limitations and risks, Le&Tran attorneys are poised to deliver the most sensible analyses and solutions to our clients. Fueled by grit and a devotion to information, we are not only warranting the most effective service but also giving our attorneys the confidence and power to grow, to make a difference to the firm, the clients, and the industry as a whole.Show more +
