History

VDB Loi was formed early in 2012 by its founding partners Edwin Vanderbruggen and Jean Loi (formerly a partner with PwC) and their teams when they split off from another leading regional law firm. They were soon afterwards joined by partners Chris Muessel (a partner with Watson Farley and Williams LLP and Rajah & Tan LLP) and Graham Garven (a partner with KPMG).

After the set up of our two initial entities in Cambodia, VDB Loi Limited (for tax and accounting services) and PYT & Associates (for legal services), new offices in Ho Chi Minh City, Vientiane and Yangon have quickly followed to create a strong presence in the region. VDB Loi formed an association with Larasati & Manullang in Indonesia but is also present through its own office to provide tax services. In 2013, a second Myanmar office was opened in the capital Nay Pyi Taw.
