Commercial

Singapore

As a business operating in today’s increasingly regulated markets, you need to manage your commercial risk while achieving your business objectives. Your success is built upon the effectiveness of your relationships with both customers and suppliers. Sector-specific contractual arrangements are key to this. Not only do you need the right legal answer, you need it in the context of the market in which you operate. With over 350 lawyers across 33 countries, our multi-disciplinary teams are trained to understand the cultural and business variations impacting your commercial arrangements.

Our Commercial, Sourcing, Technology and Regulatory team is one of the largest operating in Asia and Europe.

We advise on complex strategic commercial transactions, legal regimes and regulatory requirements, technology procurement, cloud services, data privacy, content development, as well as outsourcing.

We work closely with the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) and are part of the team that organises the IAOP APAC summits. Our lawyers speak regularly at technology and sourcing conferences in the region, on hot topics like Big Data and the Internet of Things. We are active media commentators and writers in this space, including our own blog at www.connectedasia.com. We work closely with the industry body, Asia Cloud Computing Association.
