Law firm Charles Russell Speechlys has opened an office in Singapore.
It will be led by Jeffrey Lee, a partner at the firm’s Hong Kong office. He moved to Hong Kong in March 2019 after spending several years practising in London. He advises on complex international structuring for international clients, including their establishment for estate and succession planning, asset protection and personal tax mitigation. Lee also specialises in tax planning, advising non-UK domiciled persons moving to the UK.
As the firm establishes its presence in the Singaporean market, it will add “further fee earners and service lines to the offering”.
Simon Ridpath, managing partner at Charles Russell Speechlys, said: “Singapore is one of the leading private banking and wealth management centres globally.
“Given our areas of specialism in private client, dispute resolution and transactional services, its strong capital market and international arbitration offerings make Singapore a natural move for us.”
