Mishcon de Reya’s new Singapore branch is the only office outside of London
Top 30 UK law firm Mishcon de Reya opened its first office in Asia, choosing Singapore as its base to serve high net worth clients, after hiring a two-partner team from Withers KhattarWong. The firm intends to initially focus on legal services catering to high net worth families across Southeast Asia, including international tax and succession planning and advising clients and their businesses on private capital investments, restructuring, and debt financing transactions.
Mishcon de Reya is London-based, and the new Singapore branch is the only office outside the UK capital. As a licensed foreign law practice in Singapore, the office will not conduct Singaporean law-related work apart from in those areas permitted by its licence, such as international commercial arbitration.
