A key market for our clients
King & Wood Mallesons officially opened its Singapore office in May 2015 in the Ocean Financial Centre. This follows the granting of a foreign law practice licence by the Attorney General’s Chambers in Singapore in early 2015.
The Singapore legal practice focuses on International Funds law, Dispute Resolution, International Arbitration and the Projects, Energy and Resources sector. We have specific legal expertise relating to construction and engineering projects both in transactional and contentious matters, as well as China inbound and outbound matters. We partner with our clients to provide them with a different choice of top-tier international legal expertise for cross-border and domestic work in South East Asia, and supporting Singapore-based clients with their outbound investments.
The surge of capital flow in and out of South East Asia has created a significant demand for high-quality legal services and as the only law firm in the world with lawyers licensed to practice PRC, Hong Kong, English, European, Australian and US law under an integrated global law firm brand, King & Wood Mallesons’ Singapore practice will provide you with a truly unique offering, supporting your commercial objectives in the region.
We have an established track record for inbound and outbound work involving Singapore and Singaporean companies, and have worked on many of the region’s most important transactions. We have a proven ability to manage and execute cross-border matters to a high standard and on time.
