Freshfields Reorganizes Asian Operations

25 September 2006


International law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer announced last week that it is reorganising its Asia practice by transferring to Hong Kong its Singapore practice, which primarily services clients in South East Asia.

This is in response to the changing patterns of demand for legal services in the region. As a result, the firm will not have an office in Singapore after 30 April 2007.

The two partners in Singapore, Bruce Cooper and Yeelong Tan, will relocate to the firm's Hong Kong office, and the rest of the Singapore legal team have all been offered positions with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Hong Kong.

"Our structural changes have been driven by the positive impact of China's growth on our clients' activity and their demand for legal services in the region," explained Ted Burke, the firm's chief executive.

He added:

"We are refining our Asia strategy as we match our resources to the requirements of our core client base. We are one of the leading firms operating in China, and the growth potential is enormous for our clients and for us."
