Carey Olsen's Linda Lee recognised for offshore client service in Asia

Carey Olsen Singapore partner Linda Lee has been named one of the top 10 lawyers working for offshore law firms in Asia by Asian Legal Business.

It is the second successive year that the founding partner of Carey Olsen's Singapore practice in 2015 has featured in the industry publication's Offshore Client Choice List, which is compiled taking into account responses from clients of offshore lawyers located in Asia and its own market knowledge. Ms Lee's practice area focuses on cross-border M&A, corporate finance and corporate restructuring transactions throughout Asia as well as into Europe and the US.

Ms Lee said: "Not only is it pleasing on a personal level to be named as one of the standout offshore lawyers by Asian Legal Business, but from a business perspective it also serves as recognition of the high standards of client service and legal advice we are offering out of the Singapore office."

Ms Lee said that Carey Olsen's practice in Asia had continued to develop in the past year, with further additions to the team in Singapore and the ramping up of the Hong Kong office which launched at the end of 2016.

She added: "New clients won in the last year included notable financial institutions, funds, law firms and fiduciary businesses. The firm is also seeing a continuing upward tick in offshore work from China involving Cayman and BVI structures coming directly into Singapore."
