Bird & Bird established its presence in Singapore in 2009 through its global association with a leading local firm forming, Bird & Bird ATMD. The Singapore office works closely with the firm’s regional network of offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Sydney. Our integrated one-firm approach means we can help our clients not only in Singapore and Asia, but wherever our clients need us to be.
Our team of over 50 lawyers continue to be recognised as leaders in their respective fields and for their high quality advice and deep sector knowledge, providing clients with the full range of legal services encompassing the areas of commercial, corporate, competition, data protection, dispute resolution and arbitration, employment, finance, intellectual property and real estate. We advise on both domestic and international cross-border transactions, including projects with a regional or global focus. We act for a broad range of clients including, major Asian, European and US companies, and we also regularly advise government agencies, regulatory bodies and public institutions.
Our practice is sector focused, with particular emphasis on industries being transformed by technology and the knowledge economy. This, together with an understanding of the diverse local cultures, has given us deep insight into the complex multi-jurisdictional issues clients face when doing business in the region. We are renowned for our expertise in intellectual property and employment law, and also have recognised practices in corporate, mergers and acquisitions, projects and energy, real estate and construction, technology, media and telecommunications, and all forms of dispute resolution and international arbitration. Our lawyers also have extensive experience in key sectors including Automotive, Aviation, Energy & Utilities, Financial Services, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Media, Entertainment & Sport, Retail & Consumer, Technology & Communications.
In addition to our strong Asian regional network, we also work closely with Bird & Bird’s extensive international network of offices across Europe and the Middle East. This enables us to offer local expertise within a global context, helping our clients achieve their business goals both domestically and internationally.
