Duane Morris & Selvam LLP

About Duane Morris & Selvam LLP

Duane Morris & Selvam LLP is the joint law venture between US-based international law firm, Duane Morris LLP, and Selvam LLC, a Singapore-based law firm. With more than 800 legal professionals in offices across Asia, the United States, the Middle East and Europe, the firm helps companies conduct business in and out of Asia, the United States, Latin America, the United Kingdom and beyond. In addition to the excellent skills of its lawyers, clients benefit from the cultural fluency and key relationships that the firm has developed over many years of providing quality advice throughout the region.

Our firm is often described as "unique." We have a level of collegiality that means each member of our team is treated as a member of our Duane Morris & Selvam family. Our philosophy is to embrace and encourage the diversity of our people. Our clients benefit from the global outlook and local knowledge that we provide across our global offices.

In addition to providing legal services, we believe in making a difference in our local community and we participate in various community engagement projects. Our lawyers share their knowledge and expertise pro bono with community and charitable organizations. One such initiative is for the All Saints Home, a group of elderly care centers across Singapore, which provide support to underprivileged senior citizens. Our lawyers assisted elderly residents to execute a lasting power of attorney so that those close to them may make crucial decisions on their behalf in the event that they are incapacitated. Our other pro bono work has involved helping some low income individuals who could not afford representation in civil and criminal matters.
