Ibrahim Sjarief Assegaf

As a senior member of AHP's Banking & Finance practice, Ibrahim has represented both domestic and international financial institutions, borrowers/project companies and sponsors on corporate and government syndication and bilateral financings, project financings and infrastructure projects. He also advised and represented clients in relation to a number of significant structured finance and insolvency/debt-restructuring matters.

Ibrahim's breadth and depth of experience is built from a global legal education spanning three continents. After graduating from the University of Indonesia (1997) with his LL.B., Ibrahim was appointed as a research fellow at Harvard Law School's East Asian Legal Studies Program (2002-2003), before earning an LL.M in 2009 from the University of Melbourne, Australia, facilitated by the Australian Development Scholarship.

The insight, skill, and professionalism that Ibrahim brings to his clients sees him regularly recognised as one of Indonesia's leading practitioners. Recent highlights include playing a lead role in advising the state-backed project developer in the pioneering Palapa Ring broadband project - the largest telecommunications project ever to be undertaken in Indonesia, which aims to expand nationwide broadband service in the form of 11,000 kilometres of undersea fibre-optic cables.
