Bou Nou Ouk (BNO) is a leading law firm in Cambodia, providing comprehensive legal solutions to multinational and Cambodian clients on a broad range of cross-border and domestic transactions. BNO recognized that while substantial investment was moving into Cambodia, law firms were still attempting to service their clients from major business centers outside the country such as Sydney, London, New York, Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Taiwan, Singapore and Bangkok, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh.
BNO was founded in 2003 by a group of 3 high-caliber lawyers with broad and deep practical experiences in the private sector, courts, politics and government. We have grown rapidly to become a large professional firm capable of providing high quality and efficient service to our clients. Today, we have over 16 lawyers and legal professionals to provide comprehensive legal services to meet the diverse needs of our clients. Over the years, BNO has earned an outstanding reputation both in Cambodia and the region.
BNO has established a full service presence of local and foreign legal experts in Cambodia. BNO is registered and acknowledged by the Bar Association of the Kingdom of Cambodia.
BNO offers 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 and litigations (including ADR). BNO’s clients include many of the major international banks and investors in and outside of 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 advice at every stage of a client’s business. Not only are we well equipped to handle the “upstream” licensing and negotiation stages of the investment process, but also the “downstream” legal issues that arise on a day to day basis.
