Sullivan & Cromwell has maintained a presence in Asia for nearly a century. Through high-quality legal service, S&C has established a distinguished legal practice across the continent.
Today, more than 50 S&C lawyers work in the Firm’s Asia-based offices in Beijing, Hong Kong and Tokyo. The Firm also has offices in Melbourne and Sydney.
S&C’s Asia clients represent approximately 20 percent of the Firm’s non-U.S. based clients. Located across the region, from Greater China and Japan to India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand, S&C’s clients are well-known business leaders in their respective industries.
The Firm is proud to have served these clients in first-of-their-kind, innovative transactions, many of which were singled out as landmark transactions for the region, and in successfully defending against litigation, arbitrations and investigations.
