The international law firm, McDermott Will & Emery, announced that it has established itself in Singaporean geography. The newly established office is based amid the Singaporean business district, Raffles Place area.
The firm boasts a flourishing client base throughout the Asian geography and views Singapore as the pulse for further business expansion in Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific region. Specifically, the firm has essential clientele relationships in China, Indonesia, Japan, and Korea. The firm also boasts a booming engagement in its Indian practice across the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) and the APAC (Asia Pacific) region.
The company’s office will facilitate a multi-practice with a cohesive offering that will particularly focus on Energy and Infrastructure, Mergers and Acquisitions, Commercial Transactions, Private Wealth/Tax, Technology, Capital Markets, and Government Investigations/Arbitration.
Michael S. Poulos, McDermott Partner in Charge of Strategy, stated that McDermott Will & Emery has always been determined to conquer the Asian region. However, it was essential to quest for a more wholesome and versatile offering that resonates and connects with the firm’s international strength points.
After a while, McDermott Will & Emery realized that Singaporean geography would be the ideal location to establish their hub. The firm already boasts strong connections with Singapore, London, the US, and important European offices. They also possess several lawyers who are active in the area. An on-ground team would only prove to be beneficial to further enhance the existing international relationships. It would also prove to enhance the firm’s growth curve.
