Offshore Law Firm Bolsters Recently-Opened Singapore Office

International offshore law firm has added Andrew Tually to its Singapore office, a move designed to meet increased demand for corporate and financial legal services.

Tually joined the firm in 2007, having worked as in-house counsel for an insolvency practice in Australia. He is experienced in structuring, forming and providing advice to open-ended and closed-ended collective investment schemes, including private equity, hedge funds and fund of fund structures.

Carey Olsen has seen rapid growth in Asia recently. In October 2015, it launched a Singapore office, focusing on finance and corporate transactions, mergers and acquisitions and alternative investment funds. In November last year, the firm launched its Hong Kong office.

“Expanding the firm's presence in Asia has been key to Carey Olsen's recent growth and the relocation of several key lawyers to Singapore and Hong Kong has meant we have the depth of expertise and experience to service our clients and their intermediaries in countries throughout Asia in a timely and efficient manner,” said Linda Lee, Carey Olsen's managing partner in Asia.

Tually's move comes after the appointment of Arigen Liang as counsel in the firm's Hong Kong dispute resolution and insolvency practice, as well as the relocation of Michael Makridakis and Anthony McKenzie, formerly partners at the Cayman office, to Hong Kong and Singapore respectively.
