Singapore gives us enhanced capacity to serve the business needs of our international clients throughout Asia and around the world. Focusing on cross-border mergers and acquisitions, energy & infrastructure finance (including project finance), real estate, private equity, capital markets transactions, finance and restructurings, our Singapore office delivers exceptional service to our clients in this rapidly growing region of the world.
With US, English and Indian law capabilities, our Singapore office works as an integrated team with Gibson Dunn's 17 other offices in order to provide truly world-wide coverage for our U.S., Europe, Middle East and Asia clients.
