Freshfields in Singapore
We were the first international law firm to operate in Singapore and have been working across Southeast Asia since 1980.
We support our clients on their most complex and strategically important matters in Singapore, ASEAN and India. Our focus is on corporate, M&A, dispute resolution and finance work across all sectors.
Our team is extremely familiar with the challenges that arise for investors on both inbound and outbound transactions, as well as cross-border disputes (including commercial and investment treaty arbitration) and investigations across Southeast and South Asian jurisdictions. We have made it a priority to develop strong relationships with leading local law firms, financial institutions, intermediaries and government agencies across the region, so that we can offer you the very best international legal advice based on deep local market knowledge.
