DWF is opening in Singapore with a four-lawyer team

…….. including two partners, all of whom previously worked for Eversheds Sutherland.

The partners are former Singapore managing partner Oommen Mathew and former Asia construction head Iain Black.

They will be joined by two associates, Charis Tan and Kate Lan.

Eversheds recently struck a merger deal in Singapore with local firm Harry Elias which became effective earlier this month.

Matthew and Black chose not to join the combined firm, now known as Eversheds Harry Elias.

Philip Fong, previously Harry Elias’ managing partner since 2010, became Singapore office head for the combined firm earlier this month.
