U.S. Capital Markets Practice in Asia

We are experienced representing issuers and underwriters on Section 4(a)(2), Rule 144A, Rule 801 and Regulation S global offerings, and U.S.-registered offerings.

Our U.S. capital markets partners in Singapore combine broad global training with deep Asian experience, having advised on over 175 debt and equity capital markets transactions across Singapore, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, with over US$50 billion raised in aggregate.

We offer clients an unrivalled value proposition and distinguish our services from our competitors with the high level of our partners’ involvement in matters. Our partners engage in drafting documentation and lead the daily interaction and communication. We believe that this differentiates our value proposition by giving the best possible advice on the spot, thereby saving time, increasing efficiency and supporting our adherence to budget.
