Sidley Austin hires Morgan Lewis partner in Singapore

May 16, 2013 New York based firm Sidley Austin has boosted its Singapore office with the hire of M&A partner Gregory Salathé from Morgan Lewis. Salathé will shift to Singapore after a transition period in Tokyo.

“Greg has extensive experience representing clients in Asia-related cross-border M&A transactions and understands exceptionally well the myriad issues that private equity and hedge funds face when they make downstream investments in the region,” said Thomas Albrecht, Managing Partner, Asia Pacific.

“That experience makes him a valuable addition to our practice. His appointment, together with that of investment funds partner Han Ming Ho, who will also join our Singapore office, significantly enhances our ability to advise our funds clients in the region on their most important legal matters including formation, regulatory compliance, downstream acquisitions and other corporate transactions.”
