Goodwin became the latest US firm to launch in Singapore with the relocation of a team from Hong Kong. The team, which includes Private Investment Funds partner Greg Barclay, Private Equity partner Abhishek Krishnan and counsel Ananth Lakshman, will initially focus on private equity, technology and M&A. Barclay, who relocated to Hong Kong from London in 2018, will chair the office. He told Legal Business, "We see Singapore as fitting right in the middle of the firm's global strategy in terms of our core focuses on private equity, technology, life sciences, financial services and real estate. If you look at where our clients are looking for the best opportunities to invest and to raise and structure capital, Singapore is increasingly seen as a hub."
