Goodwin’s New Singapore Office Targets Growing Tech Business (Asia Business Law Journal)

Goodwin opens its second Asian shop in Singapore with the relocation of Hong Kong-based Private Investment Funds partner Gregory Barclay to lead the new office to assist clients in raising, deploying and lending capital in the region. “There has been a lot of successful tech companies in the past few years in Southeast Asia and India, and success begets more success, so I think there is an ecosystem for these companies to thrive,” Barclay told Asia Business Law Journal. Barclay said many clients pointed out that the stricter regulatory landscape for investment in the US and Europe has created opportunities for companies, which have been traditionally investing in China and North Asia, to see more opportunities in Southeast Asia. “The new office is an extension of what we’ve been doing for 14 years or so in Hong Kong, so it’s really around the key practice areas of private equity, technology, and M&A, as the primary ones,” said Barclay.
