Morais Leitão launches Singapore office

Morais Leitão will open a new office in Singapore in May 2023, in yet another significant step in its internationalization strategy.

This opening embodies Morais Leitão’s strategy for the Asia-Pacific region, which had been more latent in recent years given the context and is now relaunched with a major breakthrough, positioning the firm as the first Portuguese firm to be present in Asia’s financial capital.

“With this new Singapore office, we strategically complement the trends we see in Portuguese investments in Asia, particularly in the sector of renewable energies, which has always been of central importance to us. Our partner André de Sousa Vieira will be heading this office, leveraging on a very significant international background”, says Nuno Galvão Teles, Managing Partner of Morais Leitão.

“Singapore has the largest number of multinationals represented locally in comparison to other Asian strategic centres, making it the perfect hub to develop our Asia-Pacific regional strategy. There is also a strong flow of investment originating in the region to projects in Africa, where we have been growing our presence with a number of remarkable deals”, comments André de Sousa Vieira, partner and head of the office.
