LAW FIRM EXPANDS REGULATORY ACTIVITIES IN SINGAPORE

Tuesday, November 17, 2020 

Law firm Hill Dickinson has appointed Jonathan Goacher as a partner, to be based in the Singapore office, as the firm expands its regulatory practice across Asia.

Goacher is a regulation specialist with around 20 years’ experience at global law firms in Asia, mainly in the insurance sector. He joins from DWF, which has announced the closure of its Singapore office. He advises on a broad spectrum of regulatory matters, including data privacy, senior manager regimes, US and other trade sanctions, anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, regulatory compliance, licensing, capital and solvency requirements, regulatory consents and employment laws. He also conducts anti-bribery/anti-corruption investigations.

Andrew Lee, head of Hill Dickinson’s Singapore office, said: "Jonathan joins us at a time when growth of our Singapore office is once again accelerating rapidly and we are expanding our practice to meet increased demand from clients. Regulation in this region is growing and becoming more challenging, and his combination of international expertise and local experience in this area will ideally position us to assist our clients. Jonathan’s presence significantly bolsters and diversifies our current offering, and marks the next stage in our growth. His capabilities will be a real asset to us.”

Goacher said: “Many view Asia as an engine for growth, and multinational clients increasingly understand that regulation now has international and local layers. I am delighted to join Hill Dickinson, as an international law firm with an established base in Asia, at this exciting juncture. I know the firm already counts many insurance organisations as clients, and I have seen the firm’s practice broaden considerably in recent years to encompass a broad range of commercial legal services. The opportunity to be part of the team that takes this growth forward to the next level is tremendously exciting.”

Hill Dickinson’s Singapore office was established in 2009 and provides clients with access to a significant range of contentious and non-contentious services.
