A British family law firm Expatriate Law formed a new branch in Singapore, Expatriate Law (Asia), as a foreign law practice.

The firm will provide English divorce and family law advice to British expats and families with links to England who are living in Singapore and across South East Asia.

The Singapore office will be led by partner Sonny Patel who has 13 years of experience in English family law. “It is essential that clients seek out the assistance of a lawyer who is able to deliver strategic advice,” said Patel, “By establishing a presence in Singapore and working closely with local lawyers across the region, our firm will be ideally placed to meet the needs of British expats at what can be a highly charged and stressful period of their lives.”

Alexandra Tribe, managing partner of the firm commented: “We aim to emulate our success in the Middle East with our new branch in Singapore.”
