Sidley Austin LLP
Sidley has had a presence in Asia Pacific for more than 35 years and is one of the few U.S. law firms to have maintained on-the-ground capabilities to serve clients in the region for almost four decades. Sidley established its first office in the Asia Pacific region in Singapore in 1982, and since then has continued to build on and enhance its capabilities for regional and global clients. In 2013, Sidley was one of only four firms to be granted a license to practice local law in Singapore under Singapore’s Qualifying Foreign Law Practice (QFLP) program. Sidley’s QFLP license was renewed in 2020.
Our lawyers in the Singapore office have represented multinational and domestic companies, investment funds, government bodies and state-owned enterprises engaged in various business sectors, including financial services, fast-moving consumer goods, telecommunications, mining and energy, and fintech.
