Freshfields confirms Singapore relaunch with lateral hires on the agenda
Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer’s partnership council has given the go-ahead to plans to reopen in Singapore. The magic circle law firm is now set to relaunch the office in the third quarter of this year, only five years after shutting its former arm in the region. Freshfields has not yet applied for a licence in Singapore, but has confirmed that it intends to practise UK and US law initially, rather than pursuing any kind of domestic law venture with a local firm, despite moves to open up the market to foreign advisers. The firm is currently in talks with a number of lateral hires to staff the office and is also expecting to relocate partners to Singapore from the rest of its network.
