Lin & Partners, a leading Taiwan law firm to global corporations, financial institutions and government agencies, announced today that the firm has been selected as one of the three general counsel to Taiwan Area National Freeway Bureau, Ministry of Transportation and Communications (“National Freeway Bureau”), after an intense public tender process out of 10 participants. During 2017, Lin & Partners will advise National Freeway Bureau on its legal matters.

It is the fourth time that the firm was selected and retained by National Freeway Bureau as its legal counsel through public tender. During the previous engagement Lin & Partners has provided National Freeway Bureau with services covering, among others, advice on management agreement with contractors in connection with operation of highway rest areas, public procurement, mediation and litigation against trespassers, etc., and has thus obtained a proven track record in its transportation/construction practice through its representation.

Since December 2016 Lin & Partners has won public bid and was selected as legal counsel to both Taoyuan International Airport Co., Ltd. and MRT Engineering Office, Bureau of High Speed Rail, Ministry of Transportation and Communications, respectively.

Dr. George Lin, founder and managing partner of Lin & Partners, will lead the project team, assisted by the firm’s head of Matthew Chen, Matthew Chen. “As part of our service portfolio, Lin & Partners will continue to assist National Freeway Bureau in its existing matters which we handled previously, and advise the Bureau on new legal issues which it faces. In particular, we will leverage on our past experience in our representation of the Bureau, and lay special emphasis on litigation prevention and resolution of issues through creative, feasible and cost-effective means”, said Dr. Lin, “and I firmly believe we are in the best position to provide National Freeway Bureau with value-added services”.
