Established in 1902, Allen & Gledhill has grown from a colonial partnership of two to become one of the largest and leading firms in Singapore, with a notable and increasing presence in the South-east Asian region. Combining our time-honoured traditions of delivering excellent service to clients and a bold and dynamic vision for the future of legal practice, we seek to provide our clients with the value-added and practical solutions suited to the modern economy and an inter-connected world.

Through our involvement in cutting-edge deals and trend-setting transactions, we have been at the forefront of practice and innovation over the years. Regularly ranked in the top tier by legal directories and publications, our award-winning firm comprises Partners who are consistently lauded as leading lawyers in their respective fields of expertise.

Whether it is dealing with the most complex and demanding of structures, breaking new ground in emerging areas of law and business, or achieving win-win results for our clients, we are committed to our mission of giving you our best as trusted advisers, and of working with you to achieve your desired outcomes.


From our roots in Singapore, we pride ourselves on an identity anchored in South-east Asia and a pioneering spirit. The Allen & Gledhill network of today includes over 650 lawyers regularly working on cross-border transactions in the cities of South-east Asia and the world. With regional offices in Singapore, Myanmar and Vietnam, as well as our associate firm in Malaysia (Rahmat Lim & Partners), and working in association with Soemadipradja & Taher in Indonesia, we further remain closely connected to a wider network of best-in-class friends in the Asian region and across continents.

In the countries where we operate, our locally qualified leading lawyers have significant on-the-ground experience and have developed close working relationships with relevant local authorities over the years. This enables us to provide you with invaluable perspectives to navigate the challenging and evolving business, legal and political landscape in the different jurisdictions.

For other markets, we have long-standing and close working relationships with law firms who are leaders in their respective jurisdictions or specialisation areas. This provides you with the flexibility to harness the best lawyers with the requisite specialist knowledge and expertise. You are therefore assured of receiving the best legal advice tailored and suited to the specific needs of the matter.

We are also able to take on an active lead or transaction counsel role on cross-border matters involving assets in multiple jurisdictions. We help coordinate advice from foreign counsel so as to provide you with integrated, seamless and premium legal advice on your regional matters.
