UK firms eye Singapore opportunities as local-law licences go up for grabs
A raft of City firms are hoping to expand their presence in Singapore by applying for licences to practise local law in the country. Legal Week has learned that DLA Piper, Lovells, Ashurst, Herbert Smith and Norton Rose are all planning to apply for licences to provide local-law advice in Singapore. However, Linklaters and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer have told Legal Week they have no plans to do so, while Clifford Chance (CC) is intending to hold off making a decision until it sees further details from the Singapore Government.
