Morgan Lewis operates as Morgan Lewis Stamford LLC in Singapore.
Located at the crossroads between the west and the east, Singapore is a major hub city serving as a key gateway to Asia, a global destination for most corporations.
Our Singapore office houses a recognized corporate, commercial, financial and disputes practice that legal law journals have described as “absolutely top-class,” delivering “sharp, detailed and prompt advice” that is both “astute and streetwise.”
Our strong experience in these areas provides our clients the assurance that their requirements can be met by a team that combines depth of experience with a breadth of specialized knowledge across multiple jurisdictions, practice areas, and industry sectors.
Singapore’s Managing Partner, Suet Fern-Lee, is widely respected as a business leader and pioneering lawyer who has led some of the largest corporate transactions in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region.
Our Singapore lawyers represent clients in a wide range of local and cross-border business transactions and finance and restructuring, asset management, dispute resolution, and international arbitration matters across all business sectors ranging from banking and finance, commodities, construction, insurance, manufacturing, minerals, oil and gas, property, and shipping to telecommunications.
Lawyers in our litigation practice have been described as “tenacious commercial litigators.”We have particular experience handling arbitrations before major tribunals, including the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), and the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA). In all representations, we provide effective, innovative, and results-driven solutions.
All the lawyers in our Singapore office are deeply conversant with the Asian region’s culture, commerce, and laws, providing clients a unique gateway to the vast Asia-Pacific market. In addition to being fluent in English, the official and commercial language of Singapore, many of them are also fluent or proficient in other languages—including Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, and Malay—that are vital for effective operations in some Asian jurisdictions.
Our lawyers also take seriously their commitment to the Singapore community, offering their time and pro bono services to nonprofit charitable, healthcare, or educational organizations as well as industrial and professional bodies.
