Shook Lin Bok LLP


Firm Profile


Shook Lin & Bok’s Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Practice is acknowledged as a leading M&A law practice by various legal publications. The Firm consistently stands among leading international law firms in Thomson Reuters’ Asian and Asia Pacific M&A league tables.


The M&A Practice has been involved in all the recent competing takeover bids and partial offers, both of which are rare in the Singapore market. The Practice is the first port of call for a number of bulge bracket investment banks for takeovers in the Singapore market.


In addition, the Practice has been involved in a number of headline acquisitions made by state-owned entities from outside Singapore in the recent years. Many of these were the entity’s first foray into Southeast Asia.


Our clients include financial institutions and corporates, both listed and unlisted. We advise on a broad range of local and cross-border M&A transactions including tender offers, buyouts, mergers, reverse takeovers, joint ventures and amalgamations, privatisations, and trade and business sales and purchases.
