Selvam & Partners launches in Yangon, Myanmar
Selvam & Partners has launched an office in Yangon, Myanmar, under the leadership of the firm’s Singapore chief Krishna Ramachandra, with the support of Benjamin Kheng, who is an associate director in the Singapore office.
The Myanmar office will serve domestic and international clients on investment and business matters, including tax, licensing, regulatory, market entry, reporting requirements and compliance issues.
“Our launch in Yangon, the country’s commercial centre, is driven primarily by client interest, which has intensified significantly in recent years, as well as by the country’s projected long-term economic outlook,” Ramachandra said in a statement.
“In addition, our team has built a strong relationship with Myanmar and its government, as a result of working closely with the Attorney General’s Office for many years. This is a natural next step for us. We intend to build a strong local contingent of experienced attorneys and consultants, supported by the infrastructure of an international law firm, to make our clients’ Myanmar plans a reality.”
