Firm Overview:
Stephenson Harwood is a law firm with over 1100 people worldwide, including more than 180 partners. Its people are committed to achieving the goals of its clients — listed and private companies, institutions and individuals. Stephenson Harwood assembles teams of bright thinkers to match its clients’ needs and give the right advice from the right person at the right time. Dedicating the highest calibre of legal talent to overcome the most complex issues, the firm delivers pragmatic, expert advice that is set squarely in the real world.

The firm is headquartered in London, with nine offices across Asia, Europe and the Middle East. In addition, the firm has forged close ties with other high quality law firms. This diverse mix of expertise and culture results in a combination of deep local insight and the capability to provide a seamless international service.

The firm has a long history of acting as a gateway between East and West, starting in 1867 when one of the firm’s founders William Harwood opened an office in Shanghai. More recently, the firm was one of the first UK firms to open in Hong Kong (1979) and mainland China (1993) and an early starter in Singapore (1996).

All of the business areas listed below are covered by one or more of the firm’s five Asian offices. In these offices and through arrangements with strategic alliance firms, Stephenson Harwood can arrange advice on the laws of England and Wales, Hong Kong, mainland China, Singapore, Myanmar, United States (New York), Canada (British Columbia), Malaysia and Indonesia.

The firm’s presence in Asia distinguishes the firm from most of its peers. Over 26% of the firm’s people are based in the Greater China and South East Asia offices, which — combined with the firm’s strategic alliances with leading law firms in Indonesia, Singapore and mainland China — means that the firm is exceptionally well placed to advise client businesses in the region, whether they are developing within Asia or looking to wider international markets for expansion.
