Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, has expanded its Southeast Asia presence with the addition of a new office in Yangon, Myanmar. A team of five lawyers, led by Mark Livingston, joins Dentons Myanmar Limited from Livingstons Legal. According to the firm, the new Myanmar office will work closely with Dentons Rodyk, one of Singapore’s most long established full service firms.
