Clyde & Co strengthened its regulatory and investigations offering with the hire of Tan Weiyi as a partner in Singapore. Tan joined from Singapore’s law firm Harry Elias Partnership where she was a partner for more than two years.
Tan is a corporate investigation and regulatory compliance specialist, advising clients on investigations into corruption, money laundering, employee misconduct, fraud and white-collar offences. She has experience assisting with the response to enforcement and regulatory authorities in Singapore, the US, the UK, Malaysia and Indonesia in the context of government investigations.
Qualified in Singapore, England and Wales, and New York, Tan also represents clients in litigation and arbitration proceedings and has been appointed to the Singapore Mediation Centre and the Singapore International Arbitration Centre panels. She is also the president of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) Singapore chapter and regularly speaks at the ACFE’s Global and Asia-Pacific fraud conferences.
“Businesses are having to face an increased regulatory burden across the sectors and geographies in which they operate,” said John Whittaker, London-based co-chair of the global regulatory and investigations practice at Clyde & Co. “Weiyi’s hire will enable us to develop our leading position in the regulatory space and to continue supporting our clients as they get to grips with this shifting regulatory landscape.”
