Stephenson Harwood launches in Myanmar


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP is launching an office in Yangon, Myanmar, expanding its Southeast Asia practice. The new office is expected to open in 2017.

"The firm has been advising clients in Myanmar, and international clients investing there, for many years and we're pleased to announce the opening of our new office in Myanmar," said Stephenson Harwood chief executive Sharon White.

"Our formal association with local law firm U Tin Yu and Associates came to an end in June. We would like to express our gratitude for the professional expertise and advice U Tin Yu and Associates – a highly regarded firm – has provided our clients and our firm during the association."

Myanmar is an active market and, following the ending of the association with U Tin Yu and Associates, the firm has decided that it is the right time to establish its own presence in the country.

The new office will support the demand of the firm’s growing client-base in Myanmar, and international clients investing there, and expands the firm's global network of offices to ten.
