Southeast Asia

Our Southeast Asia practice is centred around our offices and associated ​offices in Singapore and Jakarta. We act for a broad range of clients and our lawyers are used to working on complex cross-border deals. We work equally effectively with local law firms and managing cross office teams in Southeast Asia.
  • Profile
  • Experience
  • Key contacts

We have had a substantial presence in Singapore, our Southeast Asian hub, for nearly 20 years and that office has immense strengths in corporate, finance and dispute resolution covering the region. Our 46 lawyer team in Singapore, covering international and permitted areas of Singapore law, has built an enviable reputation for investment advice, shipping, offshore and aviation, mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance and disputes, and many of our individuals are recognised as leaders in their fields.

We have long-standing established relations with a wide network of regional law firms (including an association in Jakarta and a formal law alliance in Singapore) and will be able to provide a one stop solution to your business needs.

Understanding our clients' needs, aims and cultures helps us build lasting relationships. Through the decades of experience built up in Southeast Asia, our team is perfectly placed to provide you with the commercially focused legal services you require.
