Economic and demographic indicators show ASEAN as a region on the verge of robust growth and change. Home to nearly 600 million people it ranks behind only China and India in population and boasts more than 10 percent of the emerging world’s 2,000 largest companies. Asia’s other economic heavyweights, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, are virtually located in the backyard of ASEAN and are already strong engines of growth for Asia. Given their proximity and economic performance, ASEAN and North Asia are becoming increasingly unified as the region moves towards a more cooperative and integrated community.

Buoyed by this development, RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s ASEAN Plus Group is aimed at helping our clients to catch the wave of prosperity and growth in the region.

Our ASEAN Plus Group is made up of leading firms in twelve countries, offering clients access to more than 1000 lawyers in the opportunity-rich ASEAN region and beyond. With the 6th largest law firm in Singapore and a merger with a Vietnamese law firm, associations with top firms in Indonesia and South Korea and alliances with market-leading firms in Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Taiwan, ASEAN Plus Group has the capacity to handle the most complex regional cross-border transactions.

Our clients, ranging from early stage businesses to the world’s foremost brands, can expect intelligent and innovative legal and business solutions from a team that is attuned to the nuances of working in such a diverse and dynamic region, with the added perspective and expertise of an international firm.
