Linklaters has announced that Joel Seow joined as a partner in the firm’s Singapore office, to establish an investment funds practice. Joel has extensive experience advising sponsors in Asia on the establishment of private investment funds across various asset classes and jurisdictions, with a particular focus on private equity funds, venture capital funds, real estate funds, infrastructure funds, hedge funds and special situations funds.

We are pleased to welcome Joel to our Singapore office. Joel is an established practitioner in the global funds space, and his experience will be invaluable in helping us to establish a strong investment funds practice in Asia, working alongside our market-leading regulatory, corporate and finance practices to meet the growing demand from our clients and continue to deliver best in class service.”
