SG: Former EY member firm, disputes boutique merge
Singapore’s PK Wong & Associates, a former member firm of EY’s global network, has merged with disputes boutique Nair & Co. The new firm will be known as PK Wong & Nair.
Nair & Co was set up in October 2017 by Suresh Nair, who was previously a partner at Advocatus Law, and director and head of litigation department at Straits Law Practice. Initially focused on disputes and insolvency, the firm added a shipping practice in 2018.
Meanwhile, the four-director PK Wong, led by Mark Wong, joined the EY network in 2014. It became an independent firm in July 2018, around the time that EY added Atlas Asia Law Corporation as its Singapore member firm. PK Wong’s practice areas span conveyancing and property law, corporate and commercial, estate planning and trusts, intellectual property and litigation and arbitration
PK Wong & Nair will be led jointly by Nair and Wong, who will act as co-managing directors.
On the merger, Wong said: “The addition of the disputes team from Nair & Co will complement PK Wong & Associates’ existing disputes capabilities and also provide Nair & Co's clients with one stop corporate and commercial capability.”
