Two EY partners have rejoined Dentons Rodyk in Singapore as part of a 10-strong team hire.
Evelyn Ang and Glenda Lee, both former Dentons Rodyk corporate partners, are returning to Dentons alongside EY partner Emily Low, a statement on Thursday said.
Ang and Lee both left Dentons in 2018 to launch EY’s Singaporean law practice, Atlas Asia Law Corp—an independent member firm of EY’s global network.
Low joined Atlas Asia Law in May 2020, moving across from a general counsel role at Singapore-based mobile payments company Liquid Group and its parent company Korvac Holdings. She specialises in fund formation work across a wide variety of funds including private buy-outs, real estate, infrastructure, hybrid and hedge funds.
Prior to her time in-house, Low was a partner at White & Case and Singapore Big Four firm, Allen & Gledhill, and a director at UBS, her LinkedIn profile added.
Ang spent over seven years at Dentons Rodyk and was senior partner at the firm when she left. Prior to that, she was a partner at Singapore firm Shook Lin & Bok and also previously practiced at Allen & Gledhill, according to LinkedIn.
Lee focuses on advice related to venture capital and private equity investments, capital market transactions and M&As. She advises on investments in start-ups and other businesses and corporate actions by listed and private companies.
Joining them in the move to Dentons are senior associates Ng Xin Lei and Claire Tan and associates Rachel Tan, Ko Yuen Hyung and Joey Tam—all from the Big Four giant—plus two support staff.
S Sivanesan, head of Dentons Rodyk’s corporate practice, said: “This dynamic group of lawyers and staff will complement the undeniably strong practice we have established here at the firm.”
In a statement, EY said Ang and Low would be leaving on June 30 and current Atlas Asia Law Corporation (AALC) director, Kenneth Cheow, will continue together with a new AALC director Liew Lan Hing, who will join on 1 July 2022.
It added: “AALC will continue to provide a range of corporate and commercial legal services to clients in Singapore and Southeast Asia. The legal services capabilities of member law firms complement EY’s strong and comprehensive range of assurance, consulting, tax and strategy and transactions services and allows EY, as a network, to provide greater commercially focused advice to clients.”
Other recent hires in Singapore have included Clyde & Co adding regulatory and investigations partner, Weiyi Tan, from local firm Harry Elias.
