International appoints new Asia-Pacific head

Andrew Whan

An international law firm has announced that it has appointed a new head of its Asia-Pacific corporate practice.

Clifford Chance has welcomed Andrew Whan (pictured) to his new role. Mr Whan has been practicing in the region for more than 14 years and currently leads Clifford Chance’s private equity practice, also based in the Asia-Pacific market.

"I'm delighted to welcome Andrew to his new role. His market standing, leadership skills and deep experience in the region with a full range of clients will be well-utilised in leading such a busy practice,” said Clifford Chance regional managing partner Geraint Hughes.

"Mark has been an outstanding leader and has overseen the continued development of one of the most successful corporate practices in the region. We will continue to benefit from his expertise on the fast moving financial regulatory changes in the markets in Asia-Pacific."

Outgoing head of Clifford Chance’s corporate practice, Mark Shipman, will continue to lead the firm’s global funds and investment management group.

Mr Shipman offered his congratulations to Mr Whan, saying he will help take the firm from strength to strength.

"Andrew must be congratulated on his assumption to his new role. I have every confidence that he will continue our good momentum as the practice goes from strength to strength,” he said.

“I look forward to continuing to support our funds and asset management teams and clients."

Mr Whan said, "I'm very excited to be working alongside the corporate partners in the region to further develop our market leading capabilities.

“Our talented team has served our clients well on numerous landmark deals in the region, continually distinguishing us from our competitors.

“At the same time, I look forward to further developing client relationships and working with my longstanding clients."
