Littler Singapore

Our Asia Pacific Regional Hub

From our regional office in Singapore, we advise both Asia-based corporations and multinational companies operating in the region on their human resources and employment law compliance needs. From our Asia Pacific Regional Hub, we also provide Asia-based clients with legal advice for their human resources and labor and employment issues throughout North America, Latin America and Europe. With a singular focus on representing management in every aspect of labor and employment law, we offer a unique ability to help clients strategically design and implement both multi-country and regional human resources initiatives that take into account the local customs, laws and expectations of employers and employees in Asia Pacific and beyond.

Drawing on our knowledge of the region and our local relationships to provide strategic guidance to companies in Asia Pacific on their global HR initiatives, our robust platform and depth of experience provides service to companies operating in the region on complying with a complex web of global employment laws.

Our Team's Experience in Asia Pacific

Our global practice includes attorneys who are licensed or qualified to practice in Asia Pacific countries, and others who provide further experience working with Asia Pacific-based companies doing business in the U.S. Together they cover employment matters in Asia Pacific jurisdictions including Australia and New Zealand, China, Japan, South Korea, and multiple countries beyond, through our regular collaboration with partners throughout the region. They are well versed on the legal and cultural differences that can pose challenges in the workplace for employers with Asia Pacific operations, as well as those based in Asia Pacific who are doing business in the U.S., Canada, Europe or Latin America.
