In a recent article published by Asian Legal Business, Morrison & Foerster's Singapore managing partner, Shirin Tang, was joined by two other law firm leaders to share the lessons that they will take from 2021 and their new year resolutions and strategies for success for 2022.
Shirin commented, "For MoFo Singapore, 2021 has been another year of working from home whilst juggling personal commitments, including periods of homeschooling for those with school-aged children. However, despite all of that, I truly appreciate the sheer resilience of the MoFo team, their dedication to teamwork and collaboration and their continued willingness to ﬁnd solutions to our clients' needs, despite the ongoing challenges of remote working.
The majority of our clients are long-time clients who come back to us time and again, because our complementary practices guarantee a collaborative, seamless service. We invest the time and effort to get to know our client's business and objectives and act as an extension of their team to identify risks and find solutions. For example, on an Asia buy-out of a technology business, MoFo will deliver an on-the-ground combined team of private equity, finance, tax, compliance and technology attorneys, often with additional expertise drawn from our other offices in Asia and worldwide.
We've always revelled in this level of collaboration across practice groups and ofﬁces, but 2021 has taken it to a new level, which is particularly meaningful given our inability to meet in person or to travel. To deliver this level of service, our team has often worked very long hours, taken calls at all times of the day and worked relentlessly. This dedication has been recognised through the awards we have received. Regardless of whether remote working continues, or we go back to the ofﬁce, I know that our team's drive to collaborate, whilst being resilient and tenacious, will continue into 2022 and beyond."
