Sidley Austin Adds Private Equity Lawyer To Singapore Office

May 6 2013 | 11:50am ET

Sidley Austin has announced that Gregory Salathé joined the firm as a partner earlier this week. He is a member of the firm’s M&A practice and will reside in its Singapore office after a transition period in Tokyo.

Salathé focuses on cross-border mergers and acquisitions, with particular strength in representing private equity and hedge funds in their downstream investments. He has represented global investment funds and multinational corporations in connection with their investments across Asia, as well as Asian companies investing in the U.S. and Europe.

“Greg has extensive experience representing clients in Asia-related cross-border M&A transactions and understands exceptionally well the myriad issues that private equity and hedge funds face when they make downstream investments in the region,” said Thomas Albrecht, managing partner, Asia Pacific. “That experience makes him a valuable addition to our practice. His appointment, together with that of investment funds partner Han Ming Ho, who will also join our Singapore office, significantly enhances our ability to advise our funds clients in the region on their most important legal matters including formation, regulatory compliance, downstream acquisitions and other corporate transactions.”

“There are significant M&A opportunities throughout the Asia Pacific region, particularly in Southeast Asia, and Singapore is a natural hub for the expansion of our M&A practice,” said Matthew Sheridan, partner and co-head of Sidley’s International Corporate Finance Practice in Asia. “The growth of our Singapore office reflects the increasing importance of Southeast Asia to our clients, and Greg will bring a strong record of successful M&A and investment deal making in a number of industries.”
