From our roots in Singapore, we pride ourselves on an identity anchored in the region and a pioneering spirit. We recognise the implications of globalisation and the digital economy, and have been actively expanding our scope of services in order to cater to clients whose interest rest beyond Singapore borders. The Allen & Gledhill network, collectively known as A&G Asia, includes over 600 lawyers regularly working on cross-border transactions in the cities of Asia and the world. We have extensive experience working on multi-jurisdictional matters through our offices in Singapore, Myanmar, Vietnam and China, our associate firms in Malaysia (Rahmat Lim & Partners) and Indonesia (AGI Legal), as well as regional capabilities in other countries across Asia. We further remain closely connected to a wider network of best-in-class friends in the Asia 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. With our network working as one, you can expect seamless end-to-end service across jurisdictional borders, based on sound local knowledge along with the high standards of excellence that is synonymous with our Firm.

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 matters.
