International offshore law firm Carey Olsen has expanded its corporate practice in Asia with the relocation of partner Anthony McKenzie who joined the Singapore team from the firm’s Cayman office.
Singapore managing partner, Linda Lee, said, “Since our launch last October we are seeing increasing demand for our expertise from clients, intermediaries and international law firms in Asia. Anthony’s presence in Singapore builds on the significant experience that Carey Olsen has in the region and will further strengthen our relationships in Asia.”
Mr. McKenzie’s areas of expertise include regulated and unregulated investment funds, mergers and acquisitions, IPOs and listings, joint ventures, secured and unsecured finance arrangements, preference share issues and capital markets transactions.
“Carey Olsen has many years’ experience working with clients based in jurisdictions spanning from China to Japan, India, Hong Kong and Australia. Expanding our presence in Singapore is a natural evolution of our commitment to our clients throughout Asia,” he said.
“Being on the ground in Singapore, and working from here to leverage the firm’s wider offshore experience, will enable us to provide first-rate legal services from a convenient, regional base.”
