Ho Chi Minh City –  31 July 2017.

After nearly 20 years of serving as LuatViet’s managing partner, the firm’s founder, Mr. Tran Duy Canh, has decided to step down from this position, effective August 1st, 2017, aiming to plan for the long-term development and continued success of the Firm.

During his time as the managing partner at LuatViet, Mr. Tran Duy Canh has completely devoted himself to making sure the Firm’s clients receive the highest quality of legal services, resulting in the firm achieving great success and recognition. Mr. Tran Duy Canh has been recognized and respected as one of the leading commercial and litigation lawyers in Vietnam, primarily practicing in the areas of corporate and commercial law, construction, real estate, mergers and acquisitions, and litigation.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Minh Huyen has been respectfully appointed to succeed Mr. Tran Duy Canh in the role of the firm’s Managing Partner position. Ms. Nguyen Thi Minh Huyen has been a practicing attorney with LuatViet since 2006, and has extensive experience in various practice areas, and is known for her hands on approach, sound legal judgment, and client-focused results. At LuatViet, Ms. Minh Huyen is in charge of the litigation and arbitration team and also practices corporate and civil law. Along with her extensive experience in dispute resolution, Ms. Nguyen Thi Minh Huyen is a tireless advocate and has successfully won numerous cases for her clients and favorably settled many disputes both in court and in arbitration proceedings.

Mr. Tran Duy Canh said that it was a really difficult decision after nearly 20-year direct execution as the Managing Partner. Yet, he understood that it was the proper time to step back and allow the younger and talent people to lead the ship named LuatViet. “LuatViet needs a leader from the younger generation, to create a refreshing driving force, and to create novel development strategies to run the firm”, according to Tran Duy Canh. In addition, “We have seen that Ms. Minh Huyen possesses the qualities of the leader that we need, namely intelligence, determination, enthusiasm, and the ability to kindle fire and motivate the staffs. Of equal importance, Ms. Minh Huyen has obtained profound and extensive knowledge along with practical experience in corporate and commercial laws – a core practice area of the firm. We are pleased to announce Minh Huyen’s promotion to Managing Partner. I congratulate Huyen on her promotion and wish her well in new role.” said Tran Duy Canh.

Ms. Minh Huyen repied “I am thankful for the recognition from LuatViet. My 12 years practicing law at LuatViet has been a significant period of growth and development in my legal career.  After over a decade working at LuatViet and earning the trust of the firm’s clients and the partners, I am now eager and ready to take on the Managing Partner position. I am extremely passionate about serving LuatViet and providing its clients with exceptional legal services, and I will be dedicated to the continuing growth and development of the firm.
