Sri Lanka Desk

After decades of civil strife, law and order has been restored in Sri Lanka.  As a result, the economy has taken flight, with in-bound foreign investment growing by leaps and bounds in industries as varied as infrastructure and ports to travel and tourism.  The country’s stock market was ranked as the leading market in the world in both 2009 and 2010 for returns generated during a 12 month period.   Since 2005, Sri Lanka’s GDP per capita has doubled and the poverty and unemployment rates have been cut in half. 

Through our Managing Director Ms. Sharmila Gunasingham, we have two decades of experience helping companies enter this dynamic and rapidly growing market.   We have acted on behalf of a number of clients in Sri Lanka, including Singapore Airlines, Parkway Holdings, Ong Beng Seng’s Hotel Properties, Raffles Hotel, DBS Bank and Prima Group among others. 

We have strong connectivity in Sri Lanka through our many years of relationship with professional, regulatory and governmental bodies and the business communities in Sri Lanka which have been built up over a number of years. We also share a close working relationship with Julius and Creasy, a major law firm in Colombo.
