Careers in our Singapore office
Our Singapore office opened in 2013 providing a hub to support clients throughout South East Asia by working across teams in our other four Asian offices.
The Singapore office is located in Capital Tower on Robinson Road, an award-winning office building set in a landscaped urban plaza accented by water features.
Occupying a prime location in the heart of a busy commercial hub, Capital Tower provides a wide array of amenities including a modern fitness centre with swimming pool, auditorium/meeting room facilities and dining/service outlets, are conveniently located within this iconic landmark. The Tanjong Pagar train station is conveniently located below the office.
The firm shares an office with TMI Associates and works together with TMI’s offices in Myanmar and Vietnam to support clients in South East Asia and beyond. (Simmons & Simmons and TMI Associates have had a market leading alliance in Japan since 2001). See our Tokyo office for more information.
The firm also shares its premises with JWS Asia Law Corporation, a boutique Singapore law practice that opened in March 2015 and provides a one-stop service to the asset management and investment funds sector in Singapore.
- Legal Practice Areas
Fully integrated into our international network, our Singapore office focuses on the following core areas as follows:
The Singapore team is comprised of local and international lawyers specialising in South East Asia related work across our firm’s key global practice and industry sectors. They are particularly experienced in our core sectors of Financial Markets and TMT. We aim to be a first choice law firm for clients in the world’s fastest growing industries and therefore take time to understand the distinct demands that each client faces in order to provide a meaningful and valued service. We do this by offering deep commercial knowledge of each of our key sectors which underpin our international practice groups. For more information, see our sector focus.
In addition to acquiring first hand experience of South East Asian work, Simmons & Simmons’ Singapore practice groups also offers you the opportunity to work closely with colleagues from all our other international offices and practices, in particular, our Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo offices.
Opportunities for qualified lawyers to join Simmons & Simmons and develop their career in Singapore may arise in both a fee-earning and a knowledge-based capacity.

- Business Services
As the newest of our Asia offices, the business services team is currently very small. Working closely with legal practice teams, there is an open and collaborative feel. The team works closely with colleagues both from Singapore and across Asia as well as with the wider international network. Central services operate from the London office and provide additional support as needed, and colleagues work closely with their London and international counterparts on various international projects as these arise.
Please see profiles for examples of the types of roles open to business services professionals at Simmons & Simmons and for insight into why our employees enjoy working with us, as well as information about their experiences since joining the firm.
- Rewards and Benefits
We offer a generous rewards package in line with our position as a leading international law firm.
Within the Singapore office there are many opportunities to mix with colleagues through regular social activities and sporting events.
