The growth of Alliott Group’s legal membership in the Asia Pacific region continues with the appointment of Advocatus Law LLP (“Advocatus”). The world’s sixth largest multidisciplinary alliance of professional services firms has selected Top 50 law firm Advocatus to represent the alliance in one of the world’s most important financial centres. This latest appointment follows that of Chance Bridge Partners in Beijing, Old Bailey Chambers in Dhaka, and Jeeva Partnership in Kuala Lumpur.

The appointment of Advocatus meets the alliance’s need for a dynamic independent law firm in Singapore that can work hand in hand with the alliance’s accounting members (Guggenheim & Associates and JBS Practice Public Accounting Corporation) to offer international clients a comprehensive range of professional services expertise.

Founded in 2009 by Managing Partner Christopher Anand Daniel, Advocatus specialises in Civil and Commercial Litigation, Corporate and Commercial Transactions, International Arbitration, Employment, IP, M&A, Private Client Services, Restructuring and Insolvency, and White-Collar Crime. The team which includes 4 other equity partners, plus 15 professional and support staff, serve clients including MNCs, foreign listed companies, not-for-profit organisations, government-linked companies, financial institutions, and start-ups. The staff also conduct business in Tamil, Malay, and Mandarin languages.

Christopher, and the team have an active regional presence, and both he, and the firm, have received recognition from Legal 500 Asia Pacific, Asialaw Profiles, and Benchmark Litigation Asia Pacific, in Restructuring & Insolvency, Dispute Resolution, International Arbitration, and Employment Law categories.

Christopher comments:
