Reputation matters to us. We respond to our clients’ needs with the highest level of service and integrity benchmarked against the best international legal firms
SokSiphana&associates was founded in 1998 by Dr Sok Siphana, one of the most respected lawyers and corporate figures in Cambodia. Soon after that, he was invited by the government to serve as the Secretary of State, Ministry of Commerce, Royal Government of Cambodia from 1999 to 2005. In 2009, he resumed practice and the firm was reconstituted.
Since then, the firm has quickly risen to be one of the most prominent legal firms in the country. We are a now full service legal firm, providing the whole spectrum of corporate and commercial work. Our clients range from leading international corporate entities to progressive local businesses and banks.
A unique value add we offer is our deep connection to the development of our country and economic trends, combined with a keen appreciation of regional and global issues.
Our philosophy is simple – we are committed to help clients with effective, forward-thinking business strategy while mitigating possible risks. To maintain our firm’s highest level of service and integrity, we constantly benchmark ourselves against the best international legal firms.
Our dedication and hard work is recognised by legal publications and has garnered us regional awards. Most recently, we were highly commended at the Financial Times’ Innovative Lawyer 2018 rankings in the category of Legal Expertise: Accessing new markets & capital (Asia-Pacific), for establishing a new framework for the transport industry in Cambodia, opening the market to Uber and other ride-sharing services. We were also ranked as one of the most innovative law firms in the Asia-Pacific region.
