Goodwin Launches in Singapore, Promotes 58 to Partner (The Global Legal Post)

Top 20 US law firm Goodwin has opened doors in Singapore and promoted 58 lawyers to partner in its largest round to date. The new office is Goodwin’s second location in Asia after Hong Kong and is intended to serve clients raising, deploying and lending capital in the region and globally, The Global Legal Post reports. “Singapore is a key hub for the technology, life sciences, real estate, private equity and financial services industries for Southeast Asia and India,” said Yash Rana, chair of Goodwin’s Asia practice and co-chair of the global Private Equity practice. “Our new office in Singapore is important to our strategy of working with investors and companies in these key sectors.” Meantime, Goodwin’s latest partner promotions round skews heavily toward its Private Equity, Life Sciences and Technology practices. The 58-strong round, which is evenly split in terms of gender, is the firm’s largest yet, and marks a significant step up on last October figure of 40.
