Dear Members,                                                                                       


We are very pleased to introduce the first integrated legal services online on Indonesian laws in Indonesia. This site has been prepared for almost 2 years in cooperation with law firm Lubis Ganie Surowidjojo, Jakarta, Indonesia. The constraints to launch it earlier may not be found in other jurisdictions. Laws and regulations in Indonesia, due to its legal systems and structure, are not easily accessible, even by the legal professions. The preparation of the content, which closely relates to the present unpredictable and complex political, law and law enforcement conditions of Indonesia, has also contributed to the delay considerably. Economic crisis that affects Indonesia for the last 6 years is also a major contributing factor.


These services are brought to you with a close cooperation with Lubis Ganie Surowidjojo, one of the best Indonesian law firms qualified to fully practice in Indonesia.


LGS Online offers a comprehensive feature of integrated legal services to its members. LGS Online serves to all members an enormous database which represents more than 25 years of corporate law practices of the founders of Lubis Ganie Surowidjojo. Most of the transactions designed and facilitated by Lubis Ganie Surowidjojo were set in international business context. The LGS Online database consists of more than 6,000 Indonesian laws and regulations, hundreds of legal memoranda, forms and agreements, boiler plate provisions and many free but valuable information accessible to the members, relevant to, or in the context of Indonesian laws or doing business in Indonesia. The database will be updated and uploaded consistently and regularly. The online service characteristic of LGS Online makes it flexible to the members to access and download what the members really need from the database, and this cuts all the red tape, complexity, time, conflict issues, high cost and other constraints, that usually affect the consideration of corporations, business people and individuals to use traditional legal services.


We will update the members with what’s going on in Indonesia, from politics, business and investment opportunities, economic indicators, as well as the newest direction of the Indonesian government policy related to investment and business issues. The information will be obtained from reliable sources.


We are as excited as you are. Legal issues are not only important to lawyers. The legal information and analysis we prepare for you are also designed to be circulated to your colleague in the board meeting room. So whether you are a lawyer or executive of a corporation, our products would be valuable to equip you in making a next business or corporate move or decision to solve your legal issues. As your issues may be specific and unique in nature, our products may not be readily available to directly solve the issues. You need to consult your lawyers, particularly authorized Indonesian lawyers to verify if the products are best suitable to your issues. If and when required, Lubis Ganie Surowidjojo, one of the largest law firms in Indonesia with more than 120 lawyers and staffs, will be prepared to assist you further effectively and efficiently in solving your issues.


If you are not a member, after exploring some open-for-public feature of this site, you might be encouraged to join us. We have to apologize that the features of LGS Online are available for members only which for the time being are privileged to the active clients of Lubis Ganie Surowidjojo. Very soon, however, all features of this site will be available for new qualified and approved members.


We thank you for your continuing supports, and wish you would obtain valuable benefits from the new wave of legal services provision in Indonesia.


With very best regards,

Arief T. Surowidjojo

Chief Executive Officer
