Working in Singapore

A five-minute walk takes you to Boat Quay, a popular al fresco dining spot with lively bars and pubs along the river. From here, you will get a great view of the Colonial Quarter across the river and the bright lights of the Central Business District.

Singapore's location is ideal for travel, both for short breaks and extended trips. On a long weekend, you can travel as far afield as China, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia or Perth.

Global Mobility and Client Secondments

As a global organisation we support opportunities for our lawyers to spend time in other offices within our network. Fostering our 'one firm' culture, international secondments are a key way in which we share our expertise, enrich experiences and broaden horizons.

Opportunities to spend time at a client working within their in-house legal team are also common.
