We are experienced in civil litigation, arbitrations and dealing with the Indonesian national police in criminal investigations and complaints. In certain situations, Frans Clinton Sitio & Partners will recommend the engagement of an external Indonesian litigator depending on the nature of the case or the parties involved. Then our role may be described as that of a solicitor as we manage and support the litigator in consultation with our client. Our foreign advisors, with their extensive local knowledge, play an important role in bridging the communication gap between foreign clients, the legal principles and objectives involved, and the local litigator’s understanding of the key aspects of the case. Our solicitor role includes providing assistance during the investigation phase, legal research, developing the theory of our client’s case, preparation of the pleadings and liaising with the client throughout.
