Husein specialises in M&A, private equity financing, secured lending, debt restructuring and insolvency proceedings. Her expertise is in cross-border work, having served clients from diverse countries, including investors from China, Singapore, Malaysia, and the United States.

“Her broad international experience and deep understanding of cross-border legal matters make her an invaluable addition to our firm,” FKNK said in a statement.
