The core team comprises of managing partner Eddy Leks and partner Ivor Pasaribu. Acting on a $30 million M&A deal for client, Tokyu Land Indonesia, the firm has been retained to draft the preliminary, and conditional sale and purchase agreements in order for the client to acquire land located in Cilandak in South Jakarta.
The firm was also involved in another acquisition of land deal that was strategically located in Sudirman in South Jakarta for Cahava Globalindo Mulia, which is part of the Provident Development Group. The complication with this deal is that it involved inherited land, which has been occupied by a third party. This brought along issues of illegal occupation, change of use of land, and change of land with the local government of DKI Jakarta.
Real estate expertise is at the core of corporate firm Leks&Co. Founding partner Eddy Leks heads the practice, which focuses on large-scale real estate M&A deals. The team represented Mitra Pertala Perkasa on the sale of a plot of land in the centre of Jakarta to a publicly listed bank.

In another notable transaction, the firm represented Cahaya Globalindo Mulia with its land purchase in a strategic part of Jakarta. The transaction was subject to the laws governing inherited land and occupied by a third party.
Much of the firm’s litigation work revolves around its real estate and construction practice, involving disputes over land ownership, late payment and cancelation of purchase agreements, and consignation to the court. Partners Ivan Ari and Ivor Pasaribu are key members who are actively involved in dispute matters, and like Leks, have commercial litigation experience.
In 2013, the three teamed up to represent Elite Prima Hutama at the District Court of South Jakarta in a dispute over the purchase of the Casa Residence Apartment unit. The material value of the dispute was IDR900 million, which they successfully won.
