White & Case's Qualifying Foreign Law Practice licence extended till April 2019

LAW firm White & Case has had its Qualifying Foreign Law Practice (QFLP) licence extended by Singapore for four years till April 2019.

In 2009, White & Case was one of six law firms to receive the first QFLP licences issued by the government, which enables foreign law firms to practise certain areas of Singapore law.

"We are very pleased to have our QFLP license extended," said Hugh Verrier, White & Case's chairman. "The firm has had a meaningful presence in Singapore for more than 30 years, and we look forward to building on our past success."

Eric Berg, White & Case's head of Asia, added: "Singapore is a key international business hub and our office in Singapore plays a major role in our ability to provide critical solutions to clients' complex cross-border and local business challenges. We are excited about the opportunities this extension provides."

The US-headquartered law firm has 38 offices across 26 countries.
