Working in Singapore

Since 1983, the Singapore office has been the hub of our South and Southeast Asia regional services. Drawing on the deep local knowledge of our team and truly global resources, we help clients navigate complex multijurisdictional and cross-border transactions and disputes across Southeast Asia, South Asia and China.

We operate in Singapore through White & Case Pte. Ltd., which holds a Qualifying Foreign Law Practice (QFLP) license, enabling us—where permitted—to advise on both international and Singapore law. Our diverse team includes English, US, Singapore, Australian and Hong Kong qualified lawyers.

In our quest to advance our clients’ interests in jurisdictions around the world, we seek to recruit and develop outstanding legal talent. Reflecting our diversity of location and operation, our legal and professional staff are a rich mosaic of nationalities and backgrounds. This is a source of strength, vital to representing our global clients—an exciting mix of multinationals, financial institutions, governments and state-owned entities. Committed to our lawyers’ ongoing training and professional development, our programmes are designed to address the needs of clients and the Firm and are tailored to the individual.
