Rajah & Tann Singapore and Enterprise Singapore sign MOU to assist start-ups venturing out into South East Asia
Rajah & Tann Singapore is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with Enterprise Singapore to provide legal guidance and consultation services to start-ups in various growth and expansion phases across the major cities in South East Asia.
Under the terms of the MOU, various member firms under the Rajah & Tann Asia network in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam will, in partnership with Enterprise Singapore, conduct regular in-market pro bono legal workshops and clinics to Singapore start-ups via its regional specialist Regional Venture, Growth and Acceleration Practice Group.
The signing of the MOU underscores the commitment of Rajah & Tann Asia to support initiatives that promote Singapore’s position as a leading global hub for start-ups.
Rajah & Tann Asia is honoured to be able to share its experience and expertise with Singapore start-ups in addressing wide-ranging legal issues, from incorporation to taxation and fund-raising, which they may encounter but lack the requisite resources or knowledge to address, thereby contributing to their growth and development.
For information about the regional specialist Regional Venture, Growth and Acceleration Practice Group, please contact partners Brian Ng, Terence Quek and Paul Ng.
