Its presence in Asia dates back to 1986 when it opened its first office in China. Since then it has gradually spread to Vietnam (1994) then Singapore (2004).
Today DS has 6 offices in Asia: 3 in China (Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou), 2 in Vietnam (Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh Town) and 1 in Singapore.
Owing to its network of privileged correspondent firms it also acts in India, Japan and in the other member countries of the ASEAN.
The experience of the lawyers in charge of these offices, the biculturalism of the on-site teams and the precise in-depth knowledge of the local networks built up over a long period are all factors that have forged DS reputation and renown making it the preferred contact for local authorities and government agencies.
This positioning enables DS to offer full assistance to both its European clients wishing to develop an activity on the Asian continent and its Asian customers wishing to set up in Europe.
