After a four year absence, Steve Jacob has returned to Indochine Counsel. After his graduation from law school at Santa Clara University School of Law, and his certification as an attorney in California, Steven Jacob joined Indochine Counsel as a Foreign Consultant. He worked with Dang The Duc as a corporate and commercial attorney, handling cases ranging from international trade matters to incorporation and M&A. After a year with Indochine Counsel, he transferred to Cambodia where he worked with the boutique law firm Bun & Associates.

At Bun & Associates he continued his work as a corporate and commercial attorney, assisting the partner in charge with banking and financing matters, dealing with hotel management agreements and M&A deals. In 2011 he moved to Laos where he worked as in-house counsel for Sanum Investments Limited.
