Stephenson Harwood has shown a consistent interest in Myanmar over the years, which was further solidified by the opening of the firm's Yangon office in 2017. Together with colleagues in the firm's Singapore office, the Myanmar team handles a variety of general corporate, M&A and investment work and has experience in project development mandates in the real estate, agriculture and mining sectors. Headed by Singapore-based Tom Platts, the firm was involved in a matter arising out of one of the country's most significant recent regulatory developments: the liberalisation of the country's insurance market. The team acted for Chubb Insurance in its successful bid for a foreign insurance operating license; one of only five licenses available for bid.
