List of Attorneys
Legal Practice: Singaporean law and procedure closely resembles the British system. There is, however, no distinction between a barrister-at-law and a solicitor for purposes of pleading before the courts. By law Singapore attorneys are not permitted to accept payment for services on a percentage of damages or on a contingency basis.
The U.S. Embassy, Singapore assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of any of the firms or attorneys whose names appear on this list.
"Offshore" Law Firms: The Government of Singapore has permitted some foreign firms to have offices in Singapore, provided that they practice only "offshore" law, i.e., international corporate and financial law. They are not allowed to practice Singapore law, and may not appear in local courts. The American "offshore" firms are:

Pro Bono Legal Services: Unlike the U.S. legal system, the Singapore legal system is not required to provide legal counsel to those convicted of crimes but who cannot afford an attorney. However, for certain types of criminal charges, the Law Society of Singapore may provide U.S. citizens with pro bono legal counsel if they meet the Law Society’s application requirements including a strict financial means test. Not all applications for pro bono service are approved. To apply for pro bono legal services, see the Law Society of Singapore’s website and submit an application to request review of your case at: http://probono.lawsociety.org.sg/Help-for-Public/personal-legal-issue/CriminalLegalAidScheme1/
