Singapore acts as a hub for a significant number of companies and industries active across the Asia Pacific region, including in the developing economies of South East Asia.
Unlike the majority of international law firms operating in Singapore, our clients are able to receive advice on Singapore law, representation in the Singapore courts via Clasis LLC, and advice on multi-jurisdictional transactions involving English and Singapore law. The joint law venture with Clasis LLC enables us to provide seamless onshore and offshore advice in a single entity, drawing together the international expertise of Clyde & Co and local knowledge of Clasis LLC.
Our sectors and areas of legal expertise in Singapore include aviation, construction, corporate and commercial, dispute resolution (including mediation and international arbitration), employment, energy and resources, financial services, governance, insurance and reinsurance, projects and infrastructure, regulatory and compliance, shipping, and trade and commodities.
Our clients include major international corporates, insurers and reinsurers, investment banks and other financial institutions, airlines, trading houses, oil and gas companies, charterers, shipowners, freight forwarders, P&I clubs and government institutions.
Our lawyers are qualified to practise law in various jurisdictions including Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, England and Wales. They are multilingual and speak English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Malay, Bahasa Indonesia, Hokkien, Hindi, Tamil, Punjabi, German (among others).
In South East Asia, we have established a network of affiliations with local and correspondent law firms, and market leading specialists, who we work with regularly to support our clients’ growth strategies. These close relationships mean that we can provide an integrated and efficient service, both locally and internationally, to clients throughout Asia Pacific and worldwide.
