Singapore commercial law firm Oon & Bazul recently added two partners to manage increasing activity in the firm’s mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and restructuring and insolvency sectors during the pandemic.

The firm hired Ng Yi Wayn as a corporate partner, up from an associate at her previous firm, RHTLaw Asia. She specialises in M&A and advises clients on domestic and cross-border acquisitions, disposal of shares and assets, divestitures, takeovers and mergers, and equity capital market transactions.

Keith Han was hired as a restructuring and insolvency partner, also up from an associate at his previous firm, Clifford Chance. His practice focuses on complex commercial disputes and restructuring and insolvency.

“Yi Wayn’s and Keith’s hire reflects our firm’s ambition to strengthen our bandwidth and continue to secure talent when it becomes available,” said Oon & Bazul’s managing partner and head of dispute resolution, Bazul Ashhab. “The firm will continue to attract those who have the ambition of exploring their full potential, both in lawyering and as entrepreneurs.

We are certain that Singapore will continue to work very hard to overcome the unprecedented difficulty of dealing with the virus, and will continue to maintain its stature as a safe place to do business. Our confidence level is enhanced by the enquires we have received in our private wealth practice on the prospect of acquiring cash-strapped companies.”
