Our Approach

Every Client - Our Only Client
TSMP is not in the business of providing cookie cutter legal product. Every client is different - from his business problem to his preferences - and we invest time in understanding those needs, customising our service and solutions to meet them.

This means three things: High partner engagement, bespoke legal solutions and out-of-the-box thinking.

Global Briefing
Our frequent engagement on multi-jurisdictional transactions and with international counsel mean we're used to 24-hour turnaround demands. Our in-depth knowledge of how Asia thinks and works has, time and again, proven invaluable in getting the deal done.

Excellence with Integrity
The law is a noble profession. It demands uncompromising standards of excellence without sacrificing the principles of integrity. This underpins everything we do.

"Highly renowned and a firmly established name in the legal community"

Afghanistan 2021

The Taliban takeover of Afghanistan has set the country's women's rights back 20 years. This is why we should care. “All I could see around me were the fearful and scared faces of women and ugly faces of men who hate women, who do not like women to get educated, work and have freedom. Most devastating to me were the ones who looked happy and made fun of women.” – The Guardian, 15 August 2021. A Rude Awakening These words, by a female teacher at an English-language education centre in Kabul, and other similar stories were what jolted the world as Kabul fell to the Taliban two Sundays ago in its lightning and bloodless re-taking of Pakistan...

But Chinese companies have not been a good option for these SPACs – given current relations between the US and China, and Beijing’s crackdown on homegrown unicorns...

TSMP Acts for Allianz Real Estate in Beijing Property Deal

TSMP advised Allianz Real Estate in its approx. US$190 million all-cash purchase of 98 per cent of the ZLink office tower in Beijing.
