Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has appointed Transactional Services partners Nicholas Hanna and Mark Tan, as it grows its corporate capabilities in Singapore.
Nicholas and Mark both join from K&L Gates, where they have worked together for several years across the ASEAN region.
Nicholas’ focus is on equity capital markets, private equity, joint ventures, cryptocurrency and digital coin offerings as well as cross border mergers and acquisitions and restructurings. He also advises on fund raising for companies seeking growth capital and multinational corporations looking to invest in Asia.
Mark works across all areas of corporate and commercial law, with a particular focus on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, initial coin offerings, fund raising, equity capital markets, corporate finance, insolvency and restructurings.
