Ince name Beijing Chief Wai Yue Loh as new Head of its Singapore office’s China Practice

05.08.2019

Ince Singapore is pleased to announce that Partner and Beijing Chief Wai Yue Loh has been named the new Head of the Singapore office’s China Practice, further strengthening the business offering to clients across Asia. The litigator and specialist in shipping, commodities and energy disputes, who is qualified to practise law in Singapore, England & Wales and Hong Kong, will maintain his role leading the Beijing office, as well as his Partnership in Ince’s Hong Kong practice.

Wai Yue Loh, who practised at the Singapore bar before relocating overseas, brings a decade of experience of practicing in Mainland China to the role. He worked in Ince’s Hong Kong and Shanghai offices before playing an integral role founding the firm’s Beijing office in 2012, serving as Managing Partner in Beijing for the last seven years.

Wai Yue Loh, Partner and Head of China Practice in Singapore said

“I am immensely honoured and excited by the appointment and look forward to taking the Group’s services to greater heights in Singapore, and towards growing the firm in Asia across our core sectors areas and in the other areas in which our clients operate. Singapore has become an increasingly important hub to Chinese enterprises, and I’m excited to working with Devandran Karunakaran and his team in assisting our Chinese clients on all things Singapore, and also hope to be of service to the Singapore and international clients who may have China-related legal issues.”

Devandran Karunakaran, Managing Partner of the Singapore office said:

“We are thrilled that Wai Yue has joined the team in Singapore. He brings with him years of experience from his time in China and, as a fellow Singaporean, Wai Yue is uniquely well versed in the business cultures and demands of both China and Singapore. Wai Yue’s appointment further highlights Ince’s commitment to Asia.”

Adrian Biles, Managing Partner of Ince and Chief Executive Officer of Gordon Dadds Group said:

“Wai Yue's experience across China and Singapore make him the ideal candidate to help our clients in the region, as well as expand Ince’s offering across Asia. His legal expertise and client focus, combined with his approach to business makes him well placed to deal with any challenge and the company is delighted he has taken on this role.”

As the Head of the Singapore office’s China Practice , Wai Yue Loh will help the growing number of businesses entering the Singapore market from China, and vice-versa. He will also split his time between Singapore and Beijing to continue servicing his existing clients.

The announcement follows last week’s publication of the Gordon Dadds Group’s FY18-19 Results. Gordon Dadds acquired the Beijing, Shanghai and London offices of Ince & Co last year and agreed network arrangements with the wider Ince offices in April. Gordon Dadds rebranded the firm to Ince in May.

The Group announced strong results for FY18-19, including revenue growth of 69% to £52.6m, as well as even stronger operating profit growth of 73% to £15.2 million, driven by the successful integration of a number of new acquisitions, including Ince & Co.
