Dickson of Conyers discusses midshore and offshore jurisdictions in Asian Legal Business
In an interview with Asian Legal Business, Alan Dickson, head of Conyers Dill & Pearman’s Singapore office, discussed why offshore jurisdictions are here to stay despite the rise in midshore markets such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Ireland.
Commenting on the competition that already exists between the established offshore financial centres and midshore jurisdictions, Dickson noted: ‘The entry of midshore jurisdictions means there will be more of it going forward, but the established offshore jurisdictions are successful for a reason — they are good at what they do.’
