Wida joins from Makes & Partners, in alliance with Singapore's Wong Partnership LLP. She has more than 14 years' litigation experience across multiple jurisdictions, handling high-profile litigation and arbitration cases from civil commercial disputes to competition and anti-monopoly proceedings. Wida represents clients in Indonesian courts, tribunals and arbitrations, and has advised international and domestic companies in sectors including oil and gas, TMT and finance.
Commenting on Wida's appointment, Nigel Pridmore, Ashurst's regional head for Asia, said:
"Asia is of key strategic importance to the firm. Wida is a very well rounded lawyer who has advised her clients on different aspects of dispute resolution, both locally and internationally. Her arrival, will enable our highly-regarded disputes team to capitalise further opportunities and continue to build on our success and excellence in client service."
Rob Palmer, Ashurst arbitration partner in Singapore, added:
"We have witnessed strong growth in the use of arbitration as a means of dispute resolution in South East Asia, including in Indonesia. Wida's hire will complement our existing arbitration and dispute resolution offering, which continues to work on a range of Indonesia-related disputes."
"I am delighted to be joining the OSP team and to be working with Ashurst given the firm's exceptionally strong international network. I look forward to bringing my litigation and arbitration experience to further develop the firm's practice in Asia."
