Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific has been at the heart of our international strategy for more than 30 years beginning with the opening of our Hong Kong office in 1983.

We were one of the first foreign law firms approved by the Chinese Ministry of Justice to establish a representative office in Guangzhou in 1993 followed by Shanghai in 2002 and Beijing in 2007.

Our Singapore Joint Law Venture, Pinsent Masons MPillay, was set up in 2010 to give us local advisory capabilities. We opened our Australian offices in Sydney and Melbourne in 2015, and Perth in 2017.
