Having in mind that many investment or economic activities occurred outside Jakarta but most of clients tend to appoint lawyer(s) from Jakarta, it is highly likely that there will be a time delay from the appointment of lawyer(s) until the time where the lawyer(s) can attend on site and perform effectively.
For example, a Jakarta law firm may require approximately 24 hours – 36 hours to prepare their lawyer(s) and arrange for his/her travel to the site outside Jakarta. This time frame may be longer if the firm require client to pay a significant sum of deposit to cover their initial expense (to dispatch their personnel). Once arriving on site, the lawyer(s) may also need additional time to initiate contact and establish relationship with local authority, in order to minimize risk of the authority treated the client with prejudice. This may gave rise to significant strategic disadvantage in the event of an emergency situation (e.g. vessel collision, allegation from authorities, operational incident, third party damages-related issues, etc).
