Your marketplace is our marketplace


The Asian region includes a number of the fastest growing economies, and is increasingly open to investment and expertise. With strong capacity for further growth it is regarded as a key marketplace for many of our clients.

As an international law firm with a substantial presence in Asia, Addleshaw Goddard assists with outbound investment by Asian companies looking to expand internationally, whether into Europe, the GCC or beyond. We also provide practical legal advice and support to European and international clients looking to enter Asian local markets or who need assistance with managing existing operations.

Our offices in Hong Kong and Singapore work in conjunction with those in the UK and elsewhere, and with Hashidate Law Office in Tokyo (with which we have a formal affiliation) to provide clients - wherever they are based and their business interests lie - with a full range of high-quality legal services backed by extensive local knowledge.

We provide advice on all issues that can be relevant to companies operating internationally, including:

  • Establishing operations in other jurisdictions
  • Acquiring businesses or setting up joint ventures in those jurisdictions
  • Generating international finance through, for example, shares listings or the raising of private equity or bank financing
  • Successfully resolving complex and high-value disputes especially cross-border

Wherever required, we call upon the additional local legal expertise of members of our network of leading independent commercial law firms so that we may provide clients with a seamless cross-border capability. We also maintain dedicated regional business groups for mainland China, India, Korea, and Malaysia led by partners with substantial expertise and experience of operating in these jurisdictions.
