Leading international law firm Clifford Chance announced today that Shaun Langhorne will join its Singapore office next week as partner in the firm’s international Restructuring and Insolvency team. Shaun is a senior practitioner with vast experience in complex, multi-stakeholder and cross-border restructuring matters covering contentious and non-contentious situations across the Asia Pacific region.
Kai-Niklas Schneider, Singapore Managing Partner said, “We are delighted to welcome Shaun as we’re witnessing an increase in corporate distress and related activity across the region. His expertise further bolsters our capability as we continually strive to anticipate our clients’ needs.”
Scott Bache who spearheads the Restructuring and Insolvency offering in Asia Pacific added, “Shaun is a highly regarded specialist in cross-border restructurings and special situations mandates, including the full spectrum of contentious and non-contentious matters. His skills, experience and credentials add yet another layer of expertise to our team and boosts our regional coverage for clients.”
