May 28, 2020 Press Releases

Anderson Mori & Tomotsune (“AMT”) first established an office in Singapore in 2013 and since then have actively provided legal services in a wide range of areas in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Moving forward, AMT are pleased to strengthen AMT’s presence in Singapore and Southeast Asia via a Formal Law Alliance (Anderson Mori & Tomotsune – DOP Law) between AMT Singapore and DOP Law Corporation, a Singapore law practice headed by David Ong, with effect from 1st July 2020.

David Ong received his tertiary education in Japan in 1970 and has 40 years of experience acting as legal counsel to many Japanese multi-national corporations in Singapore across a wide range of legal areas. David Ong is fluent in the Japanese language and has a deep understanding of Japanese culture.

Under the terms of the Formal Law Alliance, AMT Singapore and DOP Law Corporation will remain as independent entities but are licensed to jointly operate as a single service provider to provide the full range of legal services which both firms are qualified to provide. This will include litigation, company law matters, finance law matters and international arbitration. This means that AMT will now be able to offer (via DOP Law Corporation) a broad range of legal services involving Singapore law. AMT Singapore together with DOP Law Corporation will act as a one-stop legal service provider in Singapore and the wider region, for all issues concerning Japanese, Singapore and international law.

While there are many Formal Law Alliances in Singapore, the AMT-DOP Law Formal Law Alliance is a landmark development in Singapore between a Japanese international law firm and a local Singapore legal practice.

To further enhance collaboration and cooperation between both AMT and DOP, both AMT and DOP will also be moving into adjacent office units in mid-September this year (subject to the prevailing Covid-19 situation).

AMT and DOP Law Corporation will continue to work in collaboration with their respective network of prestigious law firms across the world, whenever necessary, to meet the needs of our clients in the international arena.
