Nguyen Anh Tuan                            “Dr Nguyen Anh Tuan is very well versed with the laws and regulations relating to the pharmaceuticals industry in Vietnam. He understands the commercial needs and constraints and provides us with practical advice. From what I gathered, he serves many multinational pharmaceutical clients in Vietnam and is a well-recognised authority among Singapore lawyers. The shortfall I would say is that he is a very busy man and email responses may be slow - the fastest way to reach him is through his mobile phone.  He can attend to t-con or calls at short notice.”
