Carey Olsen partners make Asian Legal Business offshore top 10

Carey Olsen Singapore partners Anthony McKenzie and Linda Lee have been named in the Asian Legal Business (ALB) 2019 Offshore Client Choice List.

Limited to 10 legal experts each year, ALB describes those recognised as 'Asia's standout lawyers from offshore law firms'. To compile the list, the industry publication surveyed clients of offshore law firms, asking them to recommend lawyers who stood out not only for their ability to provide sound advice, but also their commitment to client service.

Anthony, who is the managing partner of Carey Olsen's Singapore office and head of its corporate practice in Asia, specialises in both Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands law. He has a broad range of experience in corporate, commercial and finance transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, secured and unsecured financing arrangements, as well as advising clients on the structuring, formation and maintenance of regulated and unregulated investment funds.

Clients surveyed by ALB describe him as 'extremely approachable with a can-do attitude to providing the advice needed to get transactions over the line'.

Anthony said: "It is an honour to be recognised as one of the top 10 offshore lawyers working in Asia. Carey Olsen's reputation is built on technical excellence and exceptional client service so it is fantastic for these qualities to be recognised by such a highly-respected industry commentator.

"Our offices in both Singapore and Hong Kong continue to go from strength to strength and we are excited to see what the future will bring as we continue to develop our Asia presence."

Linda, who is the founding partner of Carey Olsen's Singapore office, has wide-ranging experience in cross-border M&A, corporate finance and corporate restructuring transactions. She is praised in the Offshore Client Choice List for being 'solution-orientated, coupled with excellent, wide-ranging technical knowledge'. This is the third time Linda has been named as one of ALB's Offshore Client Choice List lawyers.
