RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s Managing Partner Tan Chong Huat shared his vision and thoughts with Asian Legal Business (ALB) on the Firm’s evolution and progressive growth.
Since RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s inception in May 2011, Chong Huat commented that there are now 12 companies in the RHT Group of Companies. This offered clients a suite of professional services under one roof, something that has not been seen in Singapore. Each of the 12 companies are managed by professionals and is run independently of the law firm.
Chong Huat also announced plans to list its professional services arm, RHT Holdings, the Leading Professional Services Group in Asia, on the Singapore Exchange Catalist Board scheduled for Q1 2016 or earlier. RHT Holdings is the holding company for four leading professional services companies: RHT Capital, RHT Corporate Advisory, RHT Compliance Solutions and RHT Management Services.
Chong Huat added that as clients are looking beyond Singapore for business opportunities, the law firm’s establishment of the ASEAN Plus Group (APG) was imperative. The APG firms provides clients seamless access to responsive and quality legal services in the ASEAN+ jurisdictions, with over 750 lawyers in eight countries – Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Philippines and South Korea. The Firm’s membership with the Taylor Wessing network also allowed clients access to Europe, the Middle East and North America.
Chong Huat attributed the achievement of RHTLaw Taylor Wessing and the RHT Group of Companies to the industrious and passionate leadership who have led their respective teams to excellence.
