The move marks Reed Smith’s continued commitment to Singapore as its Southeast Asia hub and will accommodate its growing team of diverse legal practitioners. Since establishing its presence in Singapore in 2012, and later entering into a Formal Law Alliance with Resource Law LLC in 2016, the office has grown to 57 staff, including 36 lawyers. This year alone the firm has made a number of strategic hires, including Daniel Perera into its leading Energy & Natural Resources Group and ex-mariner Joel Cockerell into its leading Shipping Group.
Reed Smith’s Singapore office remains strategically positioned to advise clients in Singapore and those conducting business throughout the region, particularly in Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, and elsewhere in South-east Asia. In addition, clients will continue to benefit from Reed Smith’s global network, receiving seamless legal advice from its offices across the globe.
