A Small Firm For VW's Big Problems
To defend itself in the biggest court ­battle in company history, Volkswagen A.G. has gone small.

Herzfeld & Rubin, Volkswagen's choice for lead counsel to handle more than 400 class actions filed over the emissions scandal, is a 66-lawyer New York law firm — tiny compared with the bulwarks Toyota Motor Corp. and General Motors Co. hired in litigation over recent safety recalls: Chicago's Kirkland & Ellis, with 1,576 lawyers, and Atlanta's Alston & Bird, with 759 lawyers...Read more

In Burma, a former rebel now fights for peace

RANGOON, Burma — The crowd that gathered to launch an American chamber of commerce in Burma in late October included diplomats, local entrepreneurs and Western business officials eyeing Asia’s newest “frontier market.”

It’s safe to say that Ngun Cung Lian — managing director of the Herzfeld, Rubin, Meyer & Rose law firm in Rangoon and part-time peace negotiator — was the only person at the upscale hotel event who had spent the early 1990s fighting the Burmese army.

“Fortunately, I survived,’’ he said. “A lot of my friends were killed.’’ ...Read more>>

American Law Firm Grows Opportunities In Myanmar

The law firm of Herzfeld, Rubin, Meyer & Rose Limited (HRMR) announced itself as the first 100% American owned law firm in Myanmar on July 29, 2013. While the United States has reduced the number of sanctions it has against the former nation of Burma in the past year, there are many U.S. sanctions still on the books that make it more difficult for American companies to do business in Myanmar than companies of any other country. I had a series of conversations with Eric Rose of HRMR about his parent law firm’s global brand, its specialty in emerging and frontier markets and why it has chosen Romania and Myanmar as its two outposts in these markets...Read more>>

American Law Firm Herzfeld & Rubin Opens Office in Myanmar

- Elizabeth Amon

Herzfeld & Rubin PC opened a law office in Yangon, Myanmar, last week, staffed by American and Myanmar attorneys. It is named Herzfeld, Rubin, Meyer & Rose Law Firm LTD. The firm also plans to open a satellite office in Myanmar’s capital Nay Pyi Taw.

Andrew Ngun Cung Lian, who was the deputy chief negotiator of the Chin National Front in its peace negotiations with the Myanmar government, will be managing director of the office and will lead a staff of five U.S. and Myanmar attorneys.

U Kyaw Hoe, a member of the National League for Democracy party’s Central Committee, heads HRMR’s litigation practice. He represents clients in contracts, real estate, labor and immigration law, as well as intellectual-property matters, the firm said.

“Herzfeld & Rubin’s attorneys have a rich history of helping develop legal frameworks in several emerging and frontier economies around the world, and our presence in Myanmar represents a substantial commitment to Southeast Asia,” Eric C. Rose, a principal of HRMR, said in a statement.

Based in New York, Herzfeld & Rubin has more than 200 attorneys there and four affiliated offices in the U.S., Europe and Israel, the firm said. The new office will be a full-service firm and will handle matters related to the emerging and frontier markets.

In September, Duane Morris LLP opened an office in Yangon as a branch of Duane Morris & Selvam LLP, a joint law venture the Philadelphia-based firm formed with Singapore-based Selvam LLC in 2010.

The foreign interest in Mynamar results from the European Union and other countries lifting most trade sanctions that were previously imposed on Myanmar. The country has implemented political and economic reforms under the leadership of President U Thein Sein. The country has abundant resources including natural gas, petroleum, timber, tin, zinc, copper, lead, coal, precious stones and fertile land, Herzfeld & Rubin said in their statement.

“The result of sweeping political and economic reform has ignited interest in Myanmar by American and other global investors -- including our clients,” Herzfeld & Rubin’s managing director, Ian Ceresney, said in a statement. “Their renewed focus in the region, and Southeast Asia generally, is the impetus behind our decision to establish a presence there.” ms
