ASEAN CEO's Message

2020 is upon us. However, 20:20 vision remains rare. Nonetheless, for us as a law firm, our focus has sharpened on how to help clients cope with change and uncertainty, whether it is adjusting to the impact of tariffs on supply chains and trade flows, facing up to new liabilities and risks in the wake of accelerating climate change or helping HR departments manage changing expectations of personal and corporate behaviour.

As 2020 progresses, our challenge is to ensure that clients understand and benefit from the Dentons difference.

Advising locally across the globe

Dentons continues to extend our global reach, with the objective of serving clients better through having the right local expertise wherever their business takes them.

In January 2020, our US region will grow by a third, with two strong firms, Bingham Greenebaum and Cohen & Grigsby, joining Dentons. Our combinations in South Korea and New Zealand also go live in the first quarter. With our global reach, we can handle multi-jurisdictional M&As and cross-border disputes more effectively.

Offering business solutions

Dentons emphasises practical effective solutions, whether for doing deals, overcoming business challenges or resolving disputes. This includes our new offering, NextLaw In-house Solutions, addressing the legal and organisational needs of the in-house corporate counsel function.

Making the most of new technology

Dentons has been developing and adopting technology that helps clients, whether by keeping costs down, improving access and connectivity or achieving consistency and accuracy.

For us here in Singapore, we are both excited and optimistic about what the New Year will bring, working with our global and ASEAN colleagues. We remain committed to doing our very best for each and every client, in matters large and small.
