Testimonials

"I use the guides to find out data on, and the work and legal environment of, a particular country. My work covers Asia so I use them for Asian countries, in particular jurisdictions where I don't have a local lawyer such as Indonesia, the Philippines, and Malaysia. "

- Suely Mori, Asia Counsel, Dow Corning Toray Co Ltd (Japan)
