Revealed: The Lawyer’s Southeast Asia Elite

This week sees the launch of our first-ever Southeast Asia Elite , an in-depth report that contains the most detailed research available on the local firms that are leading the way in the 10 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries.

With the region gearing up for the launch of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) at the end of this year, the report reveals which firms are best positioned to take advantage of the unified market and those that are true leaders in their individual markets.

From three-partner Bruneian firm Abrahams Davidson & Co to 125-year-old Singapore firm Drew & Napier, the elite all have one thing in common: they need to be in the contacts book of anyone looking to do business in ASEAN.

And they’re not the only ones; there’s a clutch of international firms making their mark in ASEAN too. Led by Baker & McKenzie, which has by far the largest coverage of any global firm in the region, the likes of Allen & Overy and Clifford Chance have been building up their Southeast Asia practices and are ready for what the single market can throw at them.
