Reed Smith moves to new offices in Singapore to accommodate growing team in Southeast Asia

Global law firm Reed Smith today announced it has moved its Singapore office to a larger space in the Ocean Financial Centre building in Raffles Place. It will continue to share its office space with Formal Law Alliance partner Resource Law LLC.

The move marks Reed Smith’s continued commitment to Singapore as its Southeast Asia hub and will accommodate its growing team of diverse legal practitioners. Since establishing its presence in Singapore in 2012, and later entering into a Formal Law Alliance with Resource Law LLC in 2016, the office has grown to 57 staff, including 36 lawyers. This year alone the firm has made a number of strategic hires, including Daniel Perera into its leading Energy & Natural Resources Group and ex-mariner Joel Cockerell into its leading Shipping Group.

Reed Smith’s Singapore office remains strategically positioned to advise clients in Singapore and those conducting business throughout the region, particularly in Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, and elsewhere in South-east Asia. In addition, clients will continue to benefit from Reed Smith’s global network, receiving seamless legal advice from its offices across the globe.

The new office has been designed by PDM, an award-winning company of JLL. With a larger conference and breakout area, Reed Smith will continue to host industry-leading events with capacity for over 100 guests.

Commenting on the office move, Barry Stimpson, managing partner of Reed Smith Singapore, said: “This is an exciting move for us which reflects our rapidly growing team and symbolises our long-term commitment to Singapore and to the Asia Pacific region. In the past six years we have established market-leading teams in our specialist sectors and industries. We look forward to growing alongside our clients as we partner with them to meet their business objectives in Singapore and the Southeast Asia region.”
