Budidjaja International Lawyers (previously known as Budidjaja & Associates) – “BIL” is an Indonesian full- service and independent law firm with a strong domestic and international presence. Established in 2007, we have quickly forged a reputation as one of the leading legal practices in Indonesia. This is evidenced by high client satisfaction, which is driving rapid growth in our firm, as well as recognition of our work from legal directories and publications such as Asian Legal Business, Asialaw Profiles, Chambers and Partners, IFLR 1000, and the Legal 500.

BIL provides legal services that are comparable with the top international law firms. We work efficiently to deliver effective solutions and outcomes for our clients. We are client service-oriented, and are open to new and innovative approaches to the practice of law. At the same time, we adhere to the highest standards of professional ethics and conduct.

Because of our independence, BIL carries a relatively lower cost base and is able to offer a flexible and competitive fee structure. We also work smarter so that the value of our results exceeds the cost of our services. While independent, we have strategic international affiliations with selected international law firms for leverage and support.

Our rich mix of talented, dedicated lawyers and legal support professionals work as a team with our clients. The commitment to our team's ongoing personal and professional development helps us to continue working smarter for optimal results. We understand that the investment in our team is an investment in our clients and our future.

We offer a range of other legal services and related specialized services such as customs and legal compliance review, asset and anti-counterfeiting investigations, and notary services. We have an internationally - accredited arbitrator in our team and offer a fully equipped mediation and arbitration room in our Jakarta office. With these capabilities, we can provide clients with comprehensive strategic support to achieve their goals and objective.

As part of our commitment to provide tailored legal solution to our clients, specifically Chinese clients, Budidjaja International Lawyers have also recently joined with Cathay Associates, a global legal service network initiated by leading Chinese boutique law firm and two European partners in September, 2015. By being a member of Cathay Associates, Budidjaja is now capable of providing services for clients in 50 different countries.
