Big Four professional services firm KPMG has expanded its global legal network to Indonesia after entering an alliance with local heavyweight Lubis Ganie Surowidjojo (LGS).
The last of the Big Four to offer legal services from an Asian base, KPMG recently established an affiliated law firm in Hong Kong named SF Lawyers. Shirley Fu (principal of SF Lawyers), Stuart Fuller (head of KPMG Law in Australia & Asia-Pacific regional leader for legal services) and Lachlan Wolfers (head of Legal, KPMG China) were in Hong Kong to talk about how technology sets their offering apart from traditional law firms.
