An Introduction to Livingstons Legal
Myanmar is the fastest growing economy in Southeast Asia and the new frontier market for global business. Investors from around Asia and around the world are drawn by the country’s potential for superior economic growth in the years and decades to come. As with any frontier market, investing and operating in a rapidly evolving business environment demands access to superior local business knowledge, regulatory insight, and a combination of local and international expertise.
Based in Yangon, Livingstons Legal is an independent corporate legal, accounting, tax and consulting practice with an exclusive focus on the rapidly developing Myanmar legal landscape. Our team comprises local and international lawyers who have expertise in inbound investment and cross-border transactions and who are deeply familiar with Myanmar’s business environment, laws, regulations and practices.
Led by Mark Livingston, an Australian qualified lawyer with well-established connections in the Myanmar business community and deep experience in advising clients on investing in Myanmar, we facilitate business, investment and trade between Myanmar and the rest of the world through innovative and cost-effective legal services. We offer a broad service commercial capability across industries, with our core areas comprising: Corporate & Commercial; Natural Resources; Corporate Finance & Capital Markets; Projects & Energy; and Telecoms, Media, Technology & IP.

Values and charitable and educational activities
Our professional services are informed by our “6Ps” values – people; personal; public; profession; profit; and purpose – which we strive to adhere to in all of our operations. We remain conscious of the privileged position and opportunity we enjoy as a foreign law firm in Myanmar and actively create and pursue opportunities to ‘give back’ by contributing to welfare and education initiatives. We will continue to use our time and skills to contribute to worthy causes and to assist in enhancing the knowledge and development of the Myanmar legal industry.
