Standard Legal Service:
  BNO provides a full range of commercial and corporate legal services and litigation to foreign and local investors operating in Cambodia. The firm provides local legal expertise for every phase of an investment - from initial contacts, licensing, negotiations with the government and joint venture partners, land purchasing, leasing, and financing, to operational issues such as labor, taxation, corporate governance and other contractual matters. BNO's clients include many of the major investors in Cambodia. While there are other firms in the region that may handle the initial stages of the investment process, there are few who have the practical local experience and the in-country presence to advise at every stage of a client'sbusiness. Not only are we well equipped to handle the "upstream" licensing and negotiation stages of theinvestment process, but also the "downstream" legal issues that arise on a day to day basis.
