With the opening of our Singapore office in October 2012, we significantly expanded our reach across Asia Pacific. From Singapore, we are strategically positioned to advise clients in Singapore and those conducting business throughout the region, particularly in Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and elsewhere in South East Asia.
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. Our locally-based lawyers – along with our vast network of lawyers worldwide – provide a seamless and personal service to address the full range of foreign law needs of our clients there and abroad.
Our team in Singapore has particular market strength in trade and commodities, shipping, energy and natural resources, restructuring, corporate, international arbitration, dispute resolution, and regulatory and investigations work. Most critically, with businesses increasingly identifying Singapore as their chosen arbitration forum, our location on the ground enables us to assist clients with arbitrations taking place in Singapore – one of the most important international arbitration centres in the world.
In June 2016, Reed Smith in Singapore entered into a Formal Law Alliance (FLA) with Singapore law practice Resource Law LLC.
The Reed Smith Resource Law Alliance significantly expands our offering in Singapore and our ability to service our clients’ legal requirements in handling multi-jurisdictional transactions, disputes and cross-border work involving Singapore law.
The full service offering of the FLA includes advisory, transactional, corporate, and dispute resolution expertise in all of Singapore’s core industries and practices, including energy and natural resources, maritime, financial industries, insurance, regulatory, restructuring and life sciences.
