Goodwin hires Matthew Nortcliff as a partner revamping its regional private investment funds practice a year after opening the Singapore office in 2022.

Based in Singapore since 2010, Nortcliff moved from CMS, where he was a partner and head of the funds and indirect real assets practice in Asia for almost six years.

Greg Barclay, chair of Goodwin’s Singapore office and a partner in the firm’s private investment funds practice, said Nortcliff’s addition and experience will provide invaluable support to clients.

“His practice fits squarely within our core strategy of advising clients in raising, deploying and lending capital in the region and around the world,” said Barclay.

Nortcliff advises managers on the establishment and operation (including regulatory matters) of a wide range of funds, structured investments and joint ventures, and in addition guides investors on corporate and real asset transactions across Asia and globally. His clients mostly focus on the real assets, private equity, venture capital and technology sectors.
