Ince & Co replenishes Singapore hub with senior appointments

Ince & Co‘s Singapore venture, Ince Law Alliance, has hired three more lawyers and has appointed a new managing director to its Singapore team as it rebuilds its Asia offering.

Ince & Co Singapore and its alliance partner Incisive Law have added five lawyers to the team in a move which it said bring the senior team to full strength. In October the practice was hit hard by the departure of Ince & Co’s Singapore managing partner Richard Lovell and Incisive Law managing director Mohan Subbaraman, who both quit for Reed Smith.

The firm has appointed Allen & Gledhill associate Felicia Tan as director, which the firm said is the equivalent of a partner in Singapore. Acting on a broad range of legal issues and high-level cases, Tan has experience advising on commercial disputes, shareholders’ litigation, contentious commodities issues, infrastructure, property and construction disputes, judicial review related advice, general corporate litigation and employment related advisory and representation.

Ince has also hired Hill Dickinson associate Moses Lin who joins an associate director. Lin is a disputes lawyer with a focus on marine, commodities and international trade. Tan and Lin will be joined by associate Justin Seet from who joins from Haridass Ho & Partners.

The team will be led by the firm’s new joint managing director Edgar Chin who has been with Incisive Law since 2014. He will work alongside current managing director Bill Ricquier.

Ricquier said in a statement: ‘These appointments underline our commitment to increasing the breadth and quality of services that we offer at Ince Law Alliance. By investing in senior hires in key areas, Ince Law Alliance is now perfectly poised to both grow its capabilities within Singapore, as well as leverage our expertise to cement our position as an internationally recognised Formal Law Alliance.’
