An experienced corporate and commercial lawyer in Indonesia, Panggabean leads the dispute resolution practice and co-leads the corporate practice at TNB & Partners. He represents a diverse range of international and local companies across the energy, mining, commodities, technology and health care sectors.
“Indonesia has the potential to become one of the leading economies in the Asia-Pacific region in coming years,” said Alison Deitz, managing partner of NRF in Australia. “We congratulate Kresna on this new appointment and are excited to continue to work with TNB & Partners to help our clients pursue opportunities and navigate change in Southeast Asia and around the world.”
