Japan‘s Anderson Mori & Tomotsune (AMT) has continued its expansion in Southeast Asia after entering into a formal law alliance (FLA) with Singapore firm DOP Law Corporation.

This is the second Japanese Big Four firm to enter into an alliance with a Singapore firm after Nishimura & Asahi established an FLA with Bayfront Law.

In January, AMT also established a presence in Hong Kong after opening an associate office – Nakamura & Associates – in that city.

Following the agreement, AMT will be able to offer local law services in Singapore.

DOP, formerly known as David Ong & Partners, was established in 1996. It currently has seven lawyers, including managing director David Ong.

AMT’s Singapore’s office, which was established in 2013, presently has 2 partners.

Besides Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan, AMT also has offices in China, Vietnam and Thailand, and an associated firm in Indonesia.
