Speaker

Stephen Le Hoang Chuong, Senior Litigator, Le & Tran

Stephen is the senior litigator and founder of Le & Tran. With over 15 years of extensive experience, Stephen has impressive litigation experience and a wealth of knowledge and understanding ranging from business litigation, judgment enforcement, labor – employment, and internal and external corporate regulatory compliance.

He was honored in Hong Kong last year as the Disputes Star of the Year of Vietnam by AsiaLaw Profiles. He has also led the firm to become one of the top tier firms ranked by Chambers & Partners, BenchMark Litigation, Legal500, Asian Legal Business in 2017 and 2018.

PETRONAS (Malaysia’s fully integrated oil and gas multinational ranked among the largest corporations in FORTUNE Global 500®) endorsed Stephen and LE & TRAN as follows:

“COMPETENCY – From the interview during the selection of law firms for acting on behalf of PETRONAS, we view LE & TRAN has strong litigation background / strategic skills in providing legal opinion. In addition, LE & TRAN confirmed that it could provide speedy turn-around time which is a very important criteria for PETRONAS in the selection of a suitable law firm. Our first impression was that LE & TRAN readily provided a solution to the current issue presented and added value to our company as well as exhibiting reasonable legal costs / fees.

PROFESSIONALISM AND ACCOUNTABILITY – During the first task given, it was observed that the head advocate and solicitor, Mr. Stephen, is a highly motivated lawyer who exhibited a desire to achieve results above and beyond expectations for the best interests of PETRONAS. Mr. Stephen demonstrated, especially to our Malaysian colleagues, a higher standard of professionalism than most, both on a personal and professional level by promoting strong values, maintaining solid accountability for his words/ actions and never making excuses in managing any task given to him by PETRONAS. He accepts responsibility for the decision made and remains calm in a crisis or emergency situation.

FOCUS AND EXECUTION – LE & TRAN proved to PETRONAS its ability to effectively execute tasks by showing a strong, unstoppable drive to push forward the completion of any assignment given. In addition, Mr. Stephen’s strength is his ability to understand and manage his client’s expectations which is crucial to achieve the desired result. Further, Stephen has the ability to confront others on any issues without fear of adverse arguments. He also realizes how to approach the client in a cordial, respectful, and honest way to address concerns.”
