Joint Statement from RHTLaw Asia and Taylor Wessing

After 8 years, we have decided to move towards a collaborative relationship in place of our formal links to enable both businesses to pursue longer term objectives in accordance with their respective strategies. We both have clear strategies – Taylor Wessing is focused on developing its sector strength in the region’s tech and financial hubs; and RHTLaw is building its Asia-focused network in new jurisdictions beyond Singapore, together with a suite of complementary businesses. This move will enable us both to focus on growth in line with our clients’ needs, while continuing to work closely where our offerings are complementary and beneficial for clients.

 

“We have gained so much from our experience with Taylor Wessing. This is a collaborative relationship. We are and will continue to do client work together. We believe that this parting of ways is necessary to enable both sides to pursue their respective longer term objectives. We will focus on building our Asia capability. We will remain a very Asia-centric technology firm with global aspirations. We will continue building our ASEAN Plus network in Asia together with a suite of complementary professional service offerings which will leverage on technology, and we will continue developing our expertise within the industry groups as well. We all love new challenges and adventures. May the year of the Rat bring you Joy, Prosperity and Good Health, in great abundance.”
