Alan Dickson discusses midshore and offshore jurisdictions in Asian Legal Business

December 2013 Alan Dickson

In an interview with Asian Legal Business, Alan Dickson, Head of Conyers Dill & Pearman’s Singapore office, weighs in on why offshore jurisdictions are here to stay despite the rise in midshore markets such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Ireland.

Commenting on the competition that already exists between the established offshore financial centres and midshore jurisdictions, he notes: “The entry of midshore jurisdictions means there will be more of it going forward, but the established offshore jurisdictions are successful for a reason – they are good at what they do.”

For more of Alan’s thoughts on this subject, read “Rise of the Midshores” on page 22 of the November issue of Asian Legal Business.
