With the opening of our Singapore office in October 2012, we significantly expanded our reach across the Asia Pacific region of the globe. From Singapore, we are able to provide clients with representation by our highly regarded – according to several independent legal directories such as Legal 500 Asia Pacific and Chambers & Partners Asia – dispute-resolution and transactional lawyers in their areas of practice.
Not only is Singapore a key Asia business centre and a significant financial hub, but it is also where a large number of our clients conduct business. Thus, our local lawyers – along with our vast network of lawyers worldwide – can provide a seamless and personal service to address the full range of foreign law legal needs of our clients there and abroad. We are positioned to strategically advise clients in Singapore and those conducting business throughout Asia Pacific – in Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and elsewhere in Southeast Asia.
Our team in Singapore has particular market strength in trade & commodities, shipping and offshore oil and gas, energy & natural resources, restructuring, corporate, and international arbitration and dispute resolution. We also have substantial experience in handling commercial and shipping disputes; providing advice on contracts that facilitate the needs of businesses in these sectors, including the structure of sale, storage, transportation and financing arrangements; insurance issues; execution problems; and related litigation and dispute resolution.
Most critically, with businesses increasingly identifying Singapore as their chosen arbitration forum, our location there enables us to assist clients with arbitrations taking place at the Singapore International Arbitration Centre – one of the most important international arbitration centres in the world.
