Firm Overview:

DN Legal was established in July of 2014 by Ms. Dao Nguyen. Having managed and helped build law practices in Vietnam for two international firms as managing partner and with over 25 years of experience in Vietnam and in Tokyo and the US, Dao decided to set up on her own so that she can provide personal attention to only a number of key clients. Thus, DN Legal’s approach is a tailored and personal legal service. All work taken on by the firm will be personally handled by Dao. We work with clients who require commercial and innovative solutions and structures to build their businesses in Vietnam.
