Legal Jobs in Singapore

You really can’t go wrong as a lawyer with a leading firm in Singapore. You will be working on complex, high-value international work for impressive clients, and you will be doing it in a smaller team where you can really make your mark. Junior lawyers enjoy the high level of involvement whilst those with experience benefit from regular client contact and an opportunity to build a network. Experience here is valued worldwide.

Not that you are likely to want to leave any time soon. Singapore is many people’s pick of places to live in Asia. It has the infrastructure and facilities of a Global city without the drawbacks. It is safe, clean and it works in a way that few major cities work. Its unrivalled air connections provide travel opportunities throughout the region.

A multicultural hub for the ASEAN region, Singapore is a melting pot of history and culture which has, in little over a half century, grown from economic backwater to become one of the wealthiest states in the world. Demand for lawyers is high but so is the bar to entry. Roles exist at all levels in the elite law firms, and typically revolve around corporate, banking & finance, investment funds, construction/projects or international dispute resolution.

If you are interested in finding out more about legal jobs in Singapore, why not get in touch with the international team at Origin Legal? We have been helping lawyers to make cross-border career moves since 2000 and we offer the experience and market knowledge to make a potentially complicated relocation run smoothly.

Senior Associate

"Jason was one of the most proactive and helpful recruiters I have dealt with. He identified a suitable position in the jurisdiction where I was considering a transfer, which I certainly would have not found on my own.
