As a new business in Indonesia, we started consulting with multiple law firms but quickly narrowed down to only Cekindo. Cekindo was recommended as one of the top firms by multiple sources in the business community. The staff at Cekindo was very responsive to our needs as a new business. The team provided consultancy and assisted our startup firm with initial business setup, licenses and permits, HR/recruitment and market research. One year since our establishment, we still consider Cekindo as our partner.

The decision to cooperate with Cekindo was based on a recommendation from our prominent partner in Bali and we cannot be more grateful. Cekindo’s systematic work, active communication, thoroughness and professionalism was exceptional.

Cekindo initially helped us with setting up our business structure in Indonesia and getting us all due licenses and approvals. Currently, Cekindo is associated with us as our business partner in Indonesia by providing a face to our name and handling various business activities on our behalf. Without their help, we would be lost in keeping up with regulatory requirements and being a compliant company in Indonesia.
