Ltd.’s well-established practice acts for domestic and international clients on the full range of corporate and M&A transactions, capital markets mandates, restructurings, project finance matters, international trade issues and disputes. On account of its association with Witara Cakra Advocates (WCA), the team is well-placed to advise on the international aspects of Indonesia-related transactions and maintains an impressive client roster. Key work highlights include representing the Ooredoo Group on the $6bn merger of Indosat Ooredoo with H3I. Head of the firm’s capital markets team Kaya Proudian advises on Indonesian debt and equity capital markets transactions, while Jonathan Olier spearheads the M&A and private equity practice, which includes key contact Jon Bowden, who acts for private equity firms and other financial sponsors on M&A transactions, joint ventures and corporate financings.

A ‘leading finance practice in the SEA region‘, White & Case Pte. Ltd. is singled out for its strength ‘in the sponsored and leverage finance space‘ and ‘deep experience‘ across APAC. With the ability to advise both on English and Singapore law, the team is a solid performer in both lender and sponsor-side mandates, and a top choice for assistance in cross-border structures involving mezzanine finance, fund lending, private credit and structured commodity finance. Also noted for its ‘particular specialism in advising lenders on leveraged buyouts in India, Indonesia and the broader SE Asia region‘, the practice is led by Alexander McMyn, who is ‘well-known to both PE and lender communities‘. Charles McConnell, who was promoted to partner in January 2022, has strong working relationships with banks, credit funds, sponsors and corporates across Southeast Asia, and focuses on acquisition financings, as well as fund-level and structured finance transactions.

Singapore > Restructuring and insolvency: foreign firms

White & Case Pte. Ltd. has cemented its position in the restructuring and insolvency field with a series of significant engagements, particularly from creditors and white knights. The Singapore group is especially active in Indonesia restructurings and being a US-based firm, it is well positioned for Chapter 11-type matters; it was part of a team that represented a group of investors in connection with the Chapter 11 filing of Riverbed Technology. Banking and finance partners Alexander McMyn and Charles McConnell have been based in Singapore for many years and have extensive experience in the restructuring segment.
