Deeply committed to the Asia region, Dechert opened in Singapore, one of the world's major financial hubs, in 2014.

Our Singapore lawyers focus on private equity, financial services and international dispute resolution throughout Asia, with a particular emphasis on South and Southeast Asia.

Working closely with our other offices in Asia and around the world, we advise investment funds, their managers and other industry participants across the entire investment management spectrum, particularly on the structuring and establishment of private equity investment funds and other private equity-related transactions. Our experience includes secondary transactions, carried interest and co-investment plans, team spin-outs, co-investments as well as the establishment of registered funds, hedge funds and products focused on other alternative asset classes (such as real estate, infrastructure and venture capital).

Our Singapore team also represents clients in complex cross-border disputes, including international arbitrations. We advise on drafting effective dispute resolution provisions in contracts and structuring investments to attain investment treaty protection in order to mitigate sovereign risk. In addition, Dechert has extensive experience in the enforcement of judgments and arbitration awards in Asia (including China) and throughout the world.
