Our ​55 lawyer Alliance 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, corporate finance and disputes.

The team in Singapore has strong expertise in the maritime industry. Our shipping and offshore team is one of very few in Asia to offer a complete ensemble of market-leading ship finance, corporate and litigation services to the maritime industry. Our clients include almost every major ship finance bank, many of the world's largest shipping, commodity and offshore multinationals and the world's leading shipyards.

We have an experienced corporate team boasting an enviable track record of market leading deals throughout Southeast Asia.

We are also recognised as having a market leading aviation finance practice. The team acted on a number of landmark and ground-breaking deals, including the world’s largest ever commercial aircraft and OEM order in history, a private placement of aircraft-backed bonds in Korea and the first foreign debt financing of aircraft in Myanmar.

We add value to the services we provide to our clients through 20 years of experience built up in Singapore. With both international and local expertise within the Stephenson Harwood (Singapore) Alliance*, we have an insight into how business is done in the region.
