Government & Regulatory, Regional

Global Expertise, Local Knowledge

Led by Managing Partner Samuel Seow, the senior lawyers in our Government & Regulatory, Regional Practice Group have worked in some of the largest and most prominent law firms in Asia and the world. 

We are instructed by multinational corporations from industries varying from food production to property development on the regulatory challenges in growing their presence in jurisdictions across South-East Asia. We also regularly advise governments on their international obligations and have represented states at international forums on some of their most significant issues (including two ongoing World Trade Organisation trade disputes).

Notwithstanding our global perspective, we recognise that an intimate understanding of local custom and nuance is crucial – particularly so in a region as heterogenous as South-East Asia. Through YSL Legal’s offices and affiliate teams, we have ready access to local-qualified lawyers from key commercial jurisdictions across the region, including China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.

                                                – White collar crime, financial fraud, insider trading, breach of trust, cheating and forgery;
                                                – Corporate governance and regulatory compliance; and
