Clyde & Co Adds 6 Partners As APAC Expansion Continues.

1 June, 2015

 

Clyde & Co is pleased to announce the addition of six partners in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, continuing the regional growth trajectory of the firm. Three of the new partners are lateral hires, and three are via internal promotion.

 

Kon Nakousis joins in Sydney as a construction partner, arriving from Minter Ellison. Kon advises both principal and contractor clients across the construction and engineering sectors, covering front and back-end construction, commercial matters and dispute resolution.

 

Justin Tan arrives into the firm’s Singapore office as a corporate partner. He joins from Singaporean firm Rodyk & Davidson, and was previously with Allen & Overy. His focus and experience is centred around M&A, commercial and projects, with particular expertise across the industrials, energy, infrastructure, real estate and chemicals sectors.

 

June Yeum has joined Clyde & Co’s Singapore (and New York) office(s) as an international arbitration partner. June arrives from Lee & Ko in Seoul. Prior to Lee & Ko, June was with Baker & McKenzie and Duane Morris in New York.

 

Three internal promotions to partner have also become effective as of 1 May, and include Gareth Horne in Sydney, in the firm’s Australian insurance practice, who also represents Clyde & Co’s first internal promotion to partnership in Australia. Gareth joined the firm in 2012 from Allens, along with the team of partners who established Clyde & Co in Australia; Trudy Seow in Clyde & Co’s aviation liability practice, based out of Singapore; and transportation finance specialist Conor Warde in Hong Kong, who has been leading development of the firm’s ship finance and leasing practice across Asia.

         

Asia Pacific board member and partner, Brian Nash, commented, “This series of additions and promotions reflects the commitment of the firm in continuing to develop the APAC region and our people. Each of the new appointments adds to the focused platform Clyde & Co has in place, and builds on the remarkable strength of team already in place in the APAC region.”

 

“The additions are strongly aligned with the firms’ sector development focus, as we continue to expand capability in line with global and regional strategy.”
