Slaughters shuts NY and Singapore

Slaughter and May is closing in New York and Singapore as it ramps up its relationship in Asia with Australian firm Allens Arthur Robinson (AAR).

The two lawyers in the firm’s New York office will return to the UK, while one Singapore-based partner will relocate to Hong Kong.

Slaughters’ Singapore work is now understood to be channelled through best friend AAR. Senior partner Tim Clark said: “These changes reflect our clients’ confidence in the international law firm model.”
