1997 was a busy year for Rouse with openings in Dubai, Jakarta, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh. All three of our teams have become acknowledged experts in their jurisdictions and globally and we thank all Rousers past and present who have all played their part in their success.
"The 25-year milestone marks a long journey in which Rouse Vietnam has grown from a small representative office in Ho Chi Minh city to now a market leading Intellectual Property firm providing a full range of IP services. Our practice, which has been growing strongly alongside the development of Vietnam economy, is striving for even greater achievements in the upcoming years." Yen Vu, Vietnam Country Manager
"Rouse established its Jakarta office in Indonesia in 1997 and now stands tall as one of the leading IP service providers in the country. We thank our team of over 80 Rousers including our network firm Suryomurcito & Co and our clients for believing in us. We will continue to ensure that we deliver integrated IP services to support innovation in a bid to realise the Advanced Indonesia vision in the years to come." Tania Lovita, Head of Dispute Resolution Team, Indonesia.
Over the past 25 years, our team in the United Arab Emirates has transformed from providing support in the Middle East to expanding its reach across Africa becoming a regional hub for our clients. Many in our current team have "grown up" with Rouse including current Middle East & Africa, Managing Partner, Bassel El Turk. [You're welcome Bassel! - Editor]
