Branches and subsidiaries of foreign law firms in Vietnam are important partners for firms seeking to enter the market. Foreign law firms can hire licensed Vietnamese lawyers and trainee solicitors. Licensed Vietnamese lawyers working at foreign firms can provide formal legal opinions on matters of Vietnamese law. Although foreign lawyers who have not been admitted to the Vietnamese Bar Association cannot appear as representatives of their clients in Vietnamese courts, Vietnamese lawyers who work for foreign firms do so. The U.S. Commercial Service Offices in Hanoi and in Ho Chi Minh City maintain a list of foreign law firms with offices in Vietnam for reference purposes.
