With lawyers in 17 offices across major cities and financial centers in Asia Pacific, we combine our local expertise and strong global relationships to provide comprehensive legal services to clients across the region. For more than 50 years, we have advised many of Asia Pacific's leading companies while establishing longstanding relationships with regulators to provide clients with invaluable insight and guidance on corporate and commercial law matters.
The quality of our work is reflected in the number of high rankings and awards we consistently receive from leading legal directories and organizations, including Asia-MENA Counsel Deal of the Year Awards, the ALB Southeast Asia Law Awards, the ILO Client Choice Awards, and the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards.
Across Asia Pacific we combine local and international experience to provide clients with the legal insight and practical business advice they need to overcome challenges and achieve their strategic objectives.
As market leaders in cross-border M&A, dispute resolution, capital markets, compliance, employment, intellectual property, tax and international trade, we help clients succeed in an increasingly complex global market. We also bring a strong industry perspective to our advice.
Named an employer of choice in six countries including Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand, at the Asian Legal Business Awards, we are committed to supporting career development. With a local presence in major jurisdictions throughout the region, we offer lawyers the opportunity to play important roles in market-leading legal matters.
We facilitate mobility and secondments among our offices and offer numerous professional development opportunities. Associates from all of our Asia Pacific offices attend regional training, practice group events, and conferences to enhance their legal skills and develop strong relationships with international peers at the same stage in their careers. Our programs are held in Bangkok, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Singapore, Taipei and Tokyo.View opportunities in Asia Pacific
