Stephenson Harwood announces formal law alliance with Singapore firm Virtus Law
Stephenson Harwood and Singapore law firm Virtus Law have received approval from the Singapore attorney-general’s chambers to form the Stephenson Harwood (Singapore) Alliance.
Through this formal law alliance, the firms will now be able to work more closely together to undertake work requiring both English and Singapore law expertise.
According to Martin Green, managing partner of the Singapore office of Stephenson Harwood, the alliance will enable Stephenson Harwood to offer clients ‘a more tightly integrated service in multi-jurisdictional matters involving English law and permitted areas of Singapore law’.
Stephenson Harwood has offices and associations across Asia, with offices in Greater China and Singapore, and associations with Christian Teo Purwono & Partners in Indonesia and U Tin Yu & Associates in Myanmar.
