Allen & Gledhill is an award-winning full-service commercial law firm which provides legal services to a wide range of premier clients, including local and multinational corporations, and financial institutions. Currently one of the largest law firms in Singapore and South-east Asia, it is consistently ranked as a market leader in Singapore for every major practice area, having been involved in numerous challenging, complex, cutting-edge and significant deals. The firm’s partners are specialists in their areas of practice and many are widely recognised as leading legal experts by clients and peers.

Allen & Gledhill is renowned for delivering exceptional legal services in Singapore and South-east Asia. Its reputation for high-quality advice is regularly affirmed by its strong rankings in leading publications, and by the various awards and accolades it has received from independent commentators and clients. The firm is consistently ranked tier one in the highest number of practice areas, and is one of the firms with the highest number of lawyers recognised as leading individuals. Over the years, it has also been named ‘Singapore Firm of the Year’ by many prominent legal awards.

Comprising over 480 lawyers in the region, Allen & Gledhill, together with its growing network of associate firms and offices, is well-placed to advise clients on their business interests in Singapore and beyond, particularly on matters involving South-east Asia and the Asian region.

Its associate firm in Malaysia, Rahmat Lim & Partners, located in Kuala Lumpur, is a full-service corporate and commercial law firm. Rahmat Lim & Partners is one of the fastest growing law firms in Malaysia. Its team of approximately 90 local lawyers is well-positioned to provide an invaluable combination of Malaysian law and practice, local insight of the Malaysian environment and context, as well as international best practices.

The firm’s Myanmar office is based in Yangon, with a team of more than 25 lawyers. It is a fully licensed law firm which provides Myanmar legal advice and issues Myanmar legal opinions. Both Myanmar and foreign qualified lawyers are familiar with the business environment, laws, regulations and practices of Myanmar to provide value-added advice and service to clients across key industry sectors.

Furthermore, the firm has strong working relationships with leading law firms worldwide, and serves both local and international clients on multi-jurisdictional transactions in South-east Asia, China, India, the Middle East, the UK, continental Europe and the US. This experience allows it to take on an effective lead counsel or project manager role in cross-border transactions.

Apart from providing legal services, the firm is committed to acting as a responsible corporate citizen and to do good to effect positive changes in the ASEAN community. A principal focus is working in partnership with, or supporting, community and charitable organisations by providing them with expertise and skills, which brings an added dimension to its practice of the law. In addition to helping charities, it also helps individuals through existing pro bono initiatives, where its lawyers volunteer at the Law Society of Singapore’s community legal clinics or take on criminal cases through the Law Society’s Criminal Legal Aid Scheme.

Allen & Gledhill collaborates closely with its clients, employees and the wider community in its CSR activities and initiatives. As part of its commitment to continue using its resources and capabilities to benefit the wider community, the firm and the National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Law jointly established the A&G-NUS Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS) Pro Bono Internship Programme in 2016. The programme is the first formal partnership between a law firm and the NUS Law Faculty focusing on pro bono work. Allen & Gledhill is driven by its belief that sustainable practices and meaningful community engagement benefit all stakeholders and help create a stronger community.
