We have long been recognised for the quality of our globally integrated finance practice, with the latest edition of Chambers Asia (2009) noting our Singapore team’s "good depth of understanding and quick response times."
In Singapore, we advise both financial institutions and corporations on a wide range of transactions across numerous industry sectors. Recent notable deals on which we have advised include Project Finance International's Asia Pacific Petrochemical Deal of the Year 2008 and FinanceAsia's Best Singapore Deal 2008.
One of Baker & McKenzie’s strengths is our ability to combine international and domestic legal advice within a single team. This of particular value to our banking and finance clients, as we can act as international and domestic counsel on a transaction, both in Singapore and around the world, thereby eliminating the issues that frequently arise when separate counsel are appointed.
We have continued to assist our clients to access finance throughout the recent turbulent economic conditions, for example, advising the lenders on the only greenfield limited recourse project financing signed in Thailand during 2008.
