U.S. law firm Goodwin Procter has hired private investment funds specialist Matthew Nortcliff as a partner in Singapore from CMS, where he headed the funds and indirect real assets practice.

Nortcliff becomes the third locally based partner in the Singapore office of Goodwin, which was established in October last year, the others being private investment funds partner Greg Barclay and private equity partner Abhishek Krishnan.

Nortcliff advises managers of funds, structured investments, and joint ventures, with focus on the real assets, private equity, venture capital, and technology sectors.

He re-joined Nabarro – the firm where he started his career - as a partner in 2016, prior to its merger with CMS in 2017. He was earlier at Hogan Lovells.
