1 min read
Global law firm White & Case LLP has had its Qualifying Foreign Law Practice (QFLP) licence renewed by the Ministry of Law in Singapore for a further term of five years until December 31, 2025.
White & Case was one of six law firms to receive the first QFLP licences issued by the Singapore government in 2009. The licence, which is conditional on the requirement to meet certain quantitative and qualitative targets, allows foreign firms to practice in permitted areas of Singapore law.
"We are very pleased to have our QFLP licence renewed," said White & Case Chair Hugh Verrier. "The Firm has had a meaningful presence in Singapore for nearly 40 years, and we look forward to building on our past success."
Jonathan Olier, White & Case Office Executive Partner in Singapore, said: "With the renewal of the QFLP licence, we look forward to working to strengthen Singapore as an international business, arbitration and restructuring hub. The extension of our licence will allow us to continue to promote Singapore law for complex cross-border transactions as well as help grow the Singapore legal industry more generally."
