Formed in 2011, Duane Morris & Selvam LLP is a strategic joint venture law firm based in Singapore, consisting of Philadelphia-based Duane Morris LLP and Selvam LLC, a Singapore firm. Together, the firm has more than 750 lawyers in 28 offices around the world. The firm has nearly tripled in size over the past 16 years but has retained the collaborative culture that has attracted many talented lawyers. Duane Morris & Selvam serves clients throughout Asia, as well as companies based in the United States, Latin America and Europe that are conducting business in Asia and beyond. The firm was the first US-Singapore joint venture to be approved by Singapore as part of the enhanced liberalisation of its legal services market.
Acting as a gateway to Asia, the firm advises businesses ranging from individual entrepreneurs to multinational corporations seeking to invest in the Southeast Asia region. With offices in Hanoi (Vietnam), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Yangon (Myanmar), and Taipei (Taiwan), and with country-specific practice groups for China, India, Japan, Korea, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, Duane Morris & Selvam has the experience and intricate understanding of local customs and business practices needed to guide domestic and foreign companies seeking new opportunities across South and Southeast Asia. We pride ourselves on having local knowledge with a global outlook.
