RHT Law LLP internationalises practice by joining Taylor Wessing
RHT Law LLP numbering more than 100 including 60 fee earners, is pleased to announce that the Firm will join Taylor Wessing to become RHTLaw Taylor Wessing LLP on 16 March 2012.
This is the next step for RHT Law LLP in the internationalisation of the Firm's business, following the earlier formation of a relationship between the Firm and Taylor Wessing through an exclusive co-operation agreement in August 2011.
As a result of the move, RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s clients will now have access to a network of over 800 legal professionals across 14 offices in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. This is in line with the firm’s strategy of delivering international capabilities locally, having the added advantage of industry specific expertise catered to each client’s business needs.
Subhas Anandan, Senior Partner and Supervisory Council Member of RHT Law LLP, comments:
"Our cooperation of the past six months has clearly established that joining Taylor Wessing will further internationalise our business and maximise the opportunities in this dynamic region. We are delighted to join Taylor Wessing and together we look forward to driving our further growth in the coming years."
Tim Eyles, Managing Partner of Taylor Wessing UK, comments:
"Having established a relationship with a Singapore practice that combines a deep rooted local knowledge with an active international outlook, this addition of RHT Law to Taylor Wessing is the natural next step for Taylor Wessing as part of our wider goal to expand into the growth economies and to be recognised as a premium law practice in Asia and South East Asia for both in and outbound business. With the opening up of the Asian legal market, we are now perfectly positioned to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the regional and global markets and turn our collective experience to the benefit of our clients."
