Graham Garven leads the tax practice at VDB Loi. The practice comprises four partners and 12 other fee earners. Since May 2016, the tax professionals that have joined the VDB Loi include Hendharto Oetomo, Olina Rizki Arizal, Rusmadi and M. Reza Pahlevi. All the practice members handle indirect tax, corporate tax, tax disputes and tax compliance.
Garven has 18 years of tax experience in Indonesia. He has previously worked with one of the Big 4 accounting firms in the country. His areas of expertise include dispute resolution, transactional work, structuring and M&A. In 2016, Garven advised a client that was bidding for a contract for the sea-to-land transition of a gas pipeline. The advice concerned the tax and investment structuring of the transaction. The advice in relation to the structuring issues was dependent on licensing issues and the definitions of business sectors.
The practice at VDB Loi was founded by Jean Loi and Edwin Vanderbruggen in 2012. Loi has substantial international experience advising on major industrial projects and transactions in key sectors such as banking and the oil and gas industry, among others.
With more than 16 years of experience, Vanderbruggen specialises in transactions and investments in Myanmar. He has advised multinational oil companies, telecommunications operators and the Cambodian government. The firm's key practice areas include compliance, international tax, structuring and controversy for clients from industries like finance, natural resources, real estate and energy.
With more than 100 lawyers and advisers, VDB Loi offers advice to a diverse range of clients across East Asia. Outside of Vietnam, the firm has offices in Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia and Myanmar, as well as representatives in Japan and Singapore.
