8 Regional Firms Launch “Rajah & Tann Asia” In SE Asia.

26 August, 2014


Ahead of the launch of the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015, eight of the region’s leading law firms have teamed up to form a one-stop service under a common banner, Rajah & Tann Asia. The eight firms are R&T Sok Heng Law Office (Cambodia), Assegaf Hamzah & Partners (Indonesia), Rajah & Tann (Laos) Sole Co Ltd, Christopher & Lee Ong (Malaysia), Rajah & Tann NK Legal Myanmar Company Limited, Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP, Rajah & Tann (Thailand) Limited, and Rajah & Tann LCT Lawyers (Vietnam).


Rajah & Tann Asia draws together more than 500 lawyers from nine countries to provide legal services in Southeast Asia, collectively from 11 offices in the major cities in Southeast Asia as well as Shanghai.


Rajah & Tann Asia is headed by a Regional Management Council, which comprises representatives from each of the eight firms and is chaired by the Managing Partner of Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP, Lee Eng Beng SC.


Mr Lee said: “This launch marks a major milestone. Rajah & Tann Asia is born and bred in Asia and looks forward to serving clients in this region. Clients will not only be offered a full slew of quality legal services and the biggest legal network in Southeast Asia, but a ‘home team’ of lawyers who have local knowledge, language skills, cultural familiarities and contacts that are crucial for businesses navigating in this diverse region. Clients can also opt to have only one point of contact instead of instructing different firms.”
