Shook Lin & Bok welcomes Kenneth Szeto and John Tan as partners as we expand our Corporate Real Estate Practice.

Kenneth and John have considerable experience working on a broad range of transactions across the commercial, industrial and residential property sectors in Singapore.

Kenneth has significant experience in the real estate alternates sector, including co-working and co-living spaces, as well as self storage facility assets. He also specialises in secured real estate financing, acting on both the lender and the borrower side. He advises private clients on their real estate investment portfolios and long term asset holding strategies.

John has over a decade of experience in real estate and financing transactions and private client work, with particular expertise in industrial and heritage properties as well as niche sub-sectors including co-living, co-working, high-tech agricultural, hospitality, manufacturing, medical, aviation, and self-storage assets.

Managing Partner of Shook Lin & Bok and head of Banking, Liew Kai Zee, said, “We are pleased to welcome Kenneth and John and their team to the Firm. Both Kenneth and John are highly regarded in their field and sought after by their clients for their expertise, energy and dedication. With their arrival, we will enhance our full service offering to our clients, adding bench strength and depth in real estate transactional, advisory and dispute resolution capabilities.”

Said Kenneth Szeto, “I am delighted to rejoin the Firm, having spent an earlier stint here as an associate, and to contribute towards the Firm’s growth story. Shook Lin & Bok has grown to be one of the largest full service premier law firms in Singapore. We look forward to working closely with our esteemed colleagues to bring our offering to the next level.”

With the addition of Kenneth and John, the corporate real estate team now has five partners.
