UK law firm Trowers & Hamlins has welcomed back Cassandra Lim, a former senior associate at its Kuala Lumpur office, as a corporate partner in Singapore.

Trowers recently opened its Singapore office, the firm’s second in Southeast Asia.

Lim rejoins Trowers after a stint as a transaction risk and M&A underwriter at Tokio Marine HCC, where she focused on underwriting warranty and indemnity insurance for deals in the APAC region.

She previously worked for Trowers from 2016 to 2022 in its Kuala Lumpur office, after it became the first foreign law practice to receive a qualified foreign law firm license in Malaysia.

"Cass was always highly regarded by our clients, and I know she will be a tremendous asset as we grow our business in Asia," said Abdulhaq Mohammed, who leads Trowers' Singapore office and Asia business.

The Singapore office now has two partners: Lim and Abdulhaq. It recently hired energy and projects expert Ignatius Hwang, a former managing partner of the local offices of McDermott Will & Emery, Squire Patton Boggs, and the legacy Bryan Cave, as a consultant.
