DLA Piper’s Ong to Head Up Eversheds Singapore

Singapore.London’s Eversheds is opening of a new office in Singapore, and beginning work on developing a presence in Hong Kong.

The firm has recruited DLA Piper’s former Singapore managing partner Desmond Ong to head up the new operation. Ong, a corporate and litigation lawyer, quit as DLA’s Singapore chief last November.

The Singapore office will be Eversheds’ second office in Asia, after Shanghai. It will serve the markets in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Last year Eversheds hired former DLA Piper and Heller Ehrman Asia head Nick Seddon to lead the Hong Kong initiative.

Eversheds LLP has 40 offices in major cities across the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It also has business groups specializing in the needs of international organizations doing business in Africa, India, Japan and North America. The firm provides legal and business advice to private and public sector businesses and the finance community worldwide.
