Indira joined Assegaf Hamzah & Partners in 2007, and quickly developed a reputation among her colleagues for hard work and an eye for detail. She currently focuses her practice on the banking and finance sectors.

Since teaming up with AHP, Indira has gained invaluable experience representing blue-chip international financial institutions, and has drafted, or advised on, a wide range of credit and security agreements related to loan facilities extended to Indonesian borrowers. In her capital market practice, she has represented a broad spectrum of household-name clients in a range of IPO and rights issue transactions, including the US$11 billion Bank Mandiri rights issue in 2010, which was Indonesia's second biggest rights issue of that year.
