Carey Olsen has added to its investment funds offering in Singapore with the addition of investment funds specialist Tom Katsaros.
Tom, who specialises in the establishment, structuring and maintenance of private equity funds and hedge funds, joins Carey Olsen after 14 years at Maples where he was most recently head of the firm’s funds and investment management team in Singapore.
In addition to acting for large financial institutions and investment funds sponsors, boutique and start-up investment managers, Tom also advises on all aspects of corporate and commercial law, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and financing transactions.
Carey Olsen Singapore managing partner Anthony McKenzie said: “Tom is a highly accomplished legal specialist and an expert within the offshore investment funds industry. His knowledge, insight and all-round expertise will be a tremendous asset to our corporate and investment funds teams in Singapore.
“The addition of such a well-regarded lawyer not only reflects the increased volume of instructions we are seeing in this practice area but also underlines the recognised quality and strength of our team in the marketplace.”
Tom, who was recognised as a global leader in the 2022 edition of Who’s Who Legal: Private Funds, qualified as a barrister and solicitor of the High Court of Australia in 2005 before his admission as an attorney-at-law in the Cayman Islands in 2008.
Carey Olsen’s Singapore office, which recently strengthened its full service offering with the hire of experienced trust and private wealth practitioner Rachel Yao, is one of only two offshore firms in the jurisdiction to be ranked as a Tier One practice by The Legal 500.
Carey Olsen is a leading offshore law firm advising financial institutions, corporations and private clients on the laws of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey from a network of nine international offices.
