Schinder Business Center: From Law Firm to Working Space
How did you end up becoming the CEO of Schinder Business Center? I founded my law firm, Schinder Law Firm, a decade ago. My law career all began when I single-handedly brought Chinese performance art to Indonesia as an
Uyghur Dance teacher.
About a decade ago, I brought an array of performing arts such as theatrical
Kung Fu and acrobatics to Indonesia.
With no fear of navigating through a new culture, I began to integrate into the local community and was able to secure the largest theater in Indonesia for one month for my show. This action garnered attention from a broad scope of media which led me to meet a diverse group of people. The accidental network expansion guided me to the position at an event coordination firm.
Not long after, I was contacted by a distinguished acquaintance from China to help him find a Mandarin speaking attorney with proven notoriety to handle a complicated case for his multinational corporation. I was appointed in assisting the company in vetting, appointing, and coordinating all the details of his case in its entirety. Eventually, my acquaintance and I won the case. The Chinese company’s confidence in our company was solidified after the win, and I began to act as their legal liaison for all their Indonesian interests.
Today, I am the founder of Schinder
Law Firm. The Schinder Law Firm is a comprehensive law firm which provides a range of legal services to assist clients in all business activities.

How do you find the progress of the work environment in recent years? The progress of the work environment in the last ten years has been on a steady incline, which is equal to the growth of the economic rate in Indonesia (5 percent as of the second quarter of 2017). Being part of ASEAN, Indonesia is entering the MEA era (ASEAN Economic community) which has applied since January 1, 2016. In the MEA era, Indonesia must have a competitive advantage for service and commodities between other ASEAN countries. Based on this indicator, Indonesia will become one of the South East Asian countries that have a significant growth for micro, small and medium enterprises, either in services or commodities. Naturally, these entrepreneurs will require facilities such as office space and meeting rooms.
As a serviced office provider, Schinder Business Center gives our clients office space and meeting meeting rooms. Our clients have access to two to 12 work stations including small, medium and large meetings rooms that can accommodate up to 20 people. Furthermore, our Function room caters up to 100 people, with complete facilities.
Being in a prime location such as Mega Kuningan, the most prestigious business area in the heart of Jakarta, our location will increase the prestige of any business. You can find us on the 27th floor of the Noble House, elegantly furnished in a reputable building with easy access to luxury hotels, apartments, and trendy restaurants. The 27th floor of the Noble House building overlooks the central business district with a panoramic view.
