Allen & Overy (A&O) has appointed partner Gautam Narasimhan, a 2000 NLSIU Bangalore graduate who had spent his entire career abroad, as the co-head of its Singapore office.

According to a press release from Allen & Over, he took over the job from Chris Moore from 1 May, sharing the responsibility with partner Tim Beech as joint managing partners.

We have reached out to Narasimhan for comment.

According to A&O’s release:

Gautam, a banking partner who has been practising in Singapore since 2006, is widely known as a market leading advisor on private equity and leveraged finance, structured finance and special situations in South and Southeast Asia, particularly in India, Indonesia, Vietnam and Singapore. He is qualified to practice law in Singapore, England & Wales, New York and India (non-practising).

Narasimhan commented in a statement: “Singapore has firmly established itself as a hub for legal expertise in the region and Singapore law continues to be an increasingly prevalent choice of law in transactions. We remain dedicated to supporting the growth and development of Singapore’s legal sector.”

He added: “With over 75 lawyers in our Singapore office and with key business functions hubbed out of this office, Tim and I are proud to be leading a diverse, high performing team...”

A&O was one of nine international firms that saw their Singapore foreign law practice licences renewed late last year.
