After almost eight years as a Stephenson Harwood partner, corporate and private equity lawyer George Cyriac is set to join Morgan Lewis & Bockius in Singapore.

Cyriac will be a partner at Morgan Lewis & Bockius, subject to relevant regulatory approvals and permits.

At Stephenson Harwood, Cyriac oversaw the firm’s private equity practice in Asia and its Indonesia practice, as well as advising on complex cross-border M&A and private equity transactions in the region.

With more than 24 years of experience, Cyriac has acted for leading multinational and Asian companies, private equity funds, sovereign wealth funds, state-owned enterprises and banks, and has advised clients across the investment cycle.

Jami McKeon, Morgan Lewis & Bockius’ chair in Philadelphia, said Cyriac’s knowledge of all manner of corporate transactions and the broader Asian business community would be helpful to assist clients with a variety of transactional needs.

“The ongoing vibrancy of business and financial sectors in Singapore demonstrates the continued opportunities offered in this important legal market,” said McKeon.

In Singapore, Morgan Lewis & Bockius operates in affiliation with a local corporation as Morgan Lewis Stamford.
