Withers has combined with Singapore's KhattarWong following a three-year formal law alliance (FLA) with the local firm, creating a new entity called Withers KhattarWong.
The pair allied in 2015, with Withers absorbing all of KhattarWong's partners at the time. The newly combined outfit now has 90 lawyers in the city-state.
Withers' chief executive, Margaret Robertson, said the merger underscores Withers' commitment to Singapore, and its belief in the immense opportunities arising from the growing wealth and business environment in the Asia-Pacific region.
Withers KhattarWong will focus on private client, tax, restructuring and insolvency, dispute resolution, investment funds, real estate, and hotels and hospitality work.
