RHTLaw Taylor Wessing congratulates our APG member firm Siam City Law Offices for being the only Thai law firm on the ‘Firms To Watch 2015’ list put together by Asian Legal Business (ALB).
Leveraging on access to other countries in ASEAN through RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s ASEAN Plus network, Siam City Law Offices was quoted as saying, “Since we have a good understanding of clients in Asia, we have set up firms in Myanmar and Laos to further expand our horizon and to be one of the leading full-service service commercial law firms of choice for local, regional, national and international clients in the Southeast Asia region.”
ALB’s Firms To Watch 2015 list celebrates law firms that may be small in size but big in potential. The list was compiled taking into account submissions from the firms themselves, along with market feedback and ALB’s own insight into Asia’s legal industry.
The Business Times announced today that RHT Holdings has begun the process for its proposed listing on the Catalist board of Singapore Exchange. It was recognised as a first by a Singapore law firm to list its professional services arm in the Republic.
Managing Partner Tan Chong Huat was quoted as saying, “In three short years, RHTLaw Taylor Wessing LLP and the RHT Group have become premier names in Singapore for legal and professional consulting services, respectively. We now wish to tap into capital markets to accelerate growth both in Singapore and internationally", starting with Indochina and Hong Kong.
Channel NewsAsia announced today that RHTLaw Taylor Wessing plans to list its professional services arm, RHT Holdings, on the Catalist Board of the Singapore Exchange (SGX) by the first quarter of 2016.
Managing Partner Tan Chong Huat was quoted as saying, “It does validate the model that a Singapore firm does not need only to focus on law businesses to grow, and that adjacent business opportunities can also be captured by subsidiaries. “The move to list is partly driven because of the competition out there. A few major international law firms are already ahead in setting up non-law professional outfits to support their legal business – so we intend to stay ahead of the competition.”
The Straits Times announced today that RHT Holdings is preparing for a listing on the Catalist board of the Singapore Exchange (SGX) by the first quarter of next year.

We now wish to tap capital markets, to accelerate growth both in Singapore and internationally. The latest Budget measure, announced on Monday, to raise the tax allowance for merger and acquisition (M&A) activities, will help spur RHT's growth."
