Law firm Clifford Chance Wong, the joint law venture (JLV) firm between global law firm Clifford Chance and Singapore firm, WongPartnership, has announced the joining of Choo Wai Hong as a partner in WongPartnership.

Currently a partner at Allen & Gledhill in Singapore, the firm she has been with since 1990, Choo specializes in a wide range of funds work, including regulatory compliance issues, licensing, and general discretionary fund management matters. She has also been active in the establishment of fund management companies, unit trusts documents for fund manager clients, and reviewing these documents on behalf of trustee clients.

"The recruitment is a great boost to the ongoing success of our joint venture with Clifford Chance in Singapore," says Alvin Yeo, joint managing partner of Clifford Chance Wong. "[It] demonstrates that the JLV is an excellent platform for us to provide our international clients in Singapore with a comprehensive service across key practice areas."

Adds James Walker, head of Clifford Chance's Asian funds practice, "I am delighted to welcome Wai Hong. She is a very experienced, well known and respected practitioner. The resulting increased ability of the JLV to practice Singapore law in this area will be of considerable benefit to our regional funds practice."
