Singapore law firm WongPartnership has formed an alliance with Malaysian boutique outfit Foong & Partners with a view to boosting its presence in South East Asia. The firm, which earlier this year decided against a merger with King & Wood Mallesons, wants to ramp up its capabilities in the Asean region due to the vast potential for mandates relating to projects, real estate, inbound and outbound investment and private equity.
