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.

In recent years, they have both built a strong reputation in FinTech and MedTech, complementing Pinsent Masons' existing expertise in these areas.

They will primarily focus on clients within the Financial Services, Technology, Science & Industry, and Energy sectors.

Andrew Masraf, Global Head of the Transactional Services Group at Pinsent Masons commented:

"Nick and Mark are an exceptional partner team and a fantastic addition to the Transactional Services group. As a key hub and global financial centre, we are focused on developing our corporate capabilities in Singapore and they will play a leading role in doing this.

"They have shown an incredible ability to adapt to changing markets and opportunities. With expertise across a number of our key global sectors (Financial Services, Technology, Science & Industry and Energy) their skillset, knowledge and experience will enable us to better support our clients."

Ian Laing, Head of Asia, said:

"Nick and Mark are a highly respected and energetic team and we are delighted to welcome them to the firm. They have built a fantastic reputation across South East Asia and will play a key role in continuing to build our strong corporate capability in the region."
