Singapore firm Allen & Gledhill launches in Myanmar

February 28, 2014 Singapore firm Allen & Gledhill has launched a base in Myanmar, setting up an associate firm - Allen & Gledhill (Myanmar) - in Yangon under the leadership of arbitration partner Minn Naing Oo.

Oo was previously the CEO of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, and before that, he was a director at the Ministry of Trade and Industry Singapore.

The move comes as many firms are looking to Myanmar for expansion: Baker & McKenzie launched in Myanmar this month, London IP firm Rouse launched there in November, Duane Morris Selvam launched in September and Japanese law firm Nishimura and Asahi opened in May.
