Prolegis is a premier boutique corporate and commercial law firm in Singapore.
The firm was founded in 2012 by Singapore practitioner Ban Leong Oo, who has over two decades of cross-border experience, acting for local and multinational corporations as well as governmental instrumentalities.
The alliance creates a "one-stop shop" for clients to access the legal services of each firm – the Singapore law expertise of Prolegis and the international skills of Herbert Smith Freehills' global network spanning Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa and North America.
Prolegis focuses on representing local and international enterprises on their business ventures in Singapore and across the region. Our firm provides legal advice in relation to a wide range of corporate and commercial practices including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, private equity, strategic investments, projects, employment, and corporate governance and advisory.
All Prolegis senior lawyers are at least dual qualified in Singapore and England & Wales (or another jurisdiction) with a significant proportion of its directors having practised at Magic Circle or global elite international law firms. Our firm's range and depth of regional experience in corporate matters, means we are well-positioned to value-add and assist in applying international standards in those jurisdictions where the local regulatory and legal environment are complex.
Our team is known for its practical and commercial approach in helping clients achieve their business goals and this is recognised by international legal directory commendations of our lawyers. We place a particular emphasis on sensitivity to cultural nuances in the region and this, combined with our understanding of the complex legal and regulatory challenges faced by clients in Asia, assists our team in providing practical yet innovative and cost-efficient legal advice.
