Dr. Luu Tien Dzung, formerly a Law Clerk for the Chief Justice of the Supreme People’s Court of Vietnam, is a co-chair of YKVN’s litigation practice. Dzung has almost 30 years’ experience in handling complex commercial disputes. During his tenure at the Supreme People’s Court, Dzung assisted the Chief Justice with the screening of many such disputes to determine whether full review by the Judicial Council of the Supreme People’s Court was appropriate and participated in drafting the first Civil Code and Civil Procedure Code of Vietnam.

Dr. Dzung was also appointed by UN Secretary General an UNDP program officer based in Ha Noi in charge of UN development programs for Vietnam on legal and judicial reforms, anti-corruption and human rights from 2002-2007.

At YKVN, Dzung has represented state-owned, local and foreign corporations in multi-million-dollar foreign trade and contractual disputes before the Vietnamese courts, as well as under VIAC, SIAC, LCIA, ICC and US GAFTA arbitration procedures. Dzung is also well-recognized for his defense of a former minister in a complex white-collar banking case.

Due to this wealth of experience in litigation and arbitration, Dzung is a much sought-after VIAC arbitrator. He was also recently appointed by the ICC International Court of Arbitration an arbitrator for adjudication of a dispute between a foreign contractor and the government authority of Vietnam.

Dzung has been recognized by Chambers Asia as a first-tier lawyer in dispute resolution in Vietnam for many years, most recently in the current 2017 edition.
