Boutique law firms Quahe Woo & Palmer and Wee Ramayah & Partners have merged in Singapore, with the new entity retaining the name Quahe Woo & Palmer.

Lawrence Quahe, managing director of Quahe Woo & Palmer, said: "The merger of Wee Ramayah & Partners with Quahe Woo & Palmer will enable us to extend new capabilities in real estate and aviation law to our clients."

The newly merged firm will offer services in areas such as conveyancing, shipping, aviation, banking and finance and arbitration, and has no plans to tie-up with an international law firm as its focus is domestic.
