One of Singapore’s largest law firms Allen & Gledhill has launched an associate firm in Myanmar, the firm announced.

Located in the country’s commercial hub Yangon, the associate firm, Allen & Gledhill (Myanmar) Co Ltd, came into operation last month.

The Yangon branch will be headed by Allen & Gledhill partner Minn Naing Oo, who was previously the chief executive officer and registrar of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, and before that, a director at the Ministry of Trade and Industry Singapore.

Allen & Gledhill (Myanmar) currently has four lawyers, including Minn, while two of them are Myanmar-qualified lawyers, the firm said.

Allen & Gledhill (Myanmar) will offer a full range of legal services including banking and finance, corporate and commercial, corporate mergers and acquisitions and international arbitration, a spokesperson of the firm told Myanmar Business Today in an email.

The launch of the firm is part of Allen & Gledhill’s “strategy of developing a strong Southeast Asia platform to meet the needs of our clients,” she added.

The launch of Allen & Gledhill (Myanmar) follows the establishment of another associate firm, Allen & Gledhill (Laos) Co Ltd in Vientiane.

“Myanmar is the most exciting emerging market in Asia right now with tremendous opportunities for investment and huge growth potential,” Minn told Myanmar Business Today.

Allen & Gledhill has over 300 lawyers, and serves clients in Southeast Asia, China, India, the Middle East, the UK and the United States.
