Pinsent Masons has appointed Singapore-based partner Nicholas Hanna as its new head of corporate, Asia Pacific.
Nicholas will be a key member of the firm’s transactional services global leadership team. The team will focus on growth, enhancing the service to clients across key sectors and delivering greater connectivity between the regions, with the aim of providing the firm’s clients with seamless service globally, all the while still retaining the firm’s identity as a purpose-led, professional services business with law at its core.
Nicholas joined the firm in July 2020 from K&L Gates. His practice focuses on equity capital markets, private equity, joint ventures, as well as cross border M&A and restructuring transactions.
“Since joining the firm, Nicholas has helped drive forward our business in the region, working closely and collaboratively with other colleagues to ensure that we continue to provide our valued clients with the high quality of advice and service that they have become accustom. Nicholas is a great addition to my team, as he brings with him a wealth of skills and knowledge. I very much look forward to working closely with Nicholas,” said Hammad Akhtar, head of Transaction Services.
