Sivaramakrishnan is McDermott’s third lateral hire in Singapore so far. With a focus on investment banking, international equity and debt capital markets transactions and M&A, he was at Herbert Smith Freehills for more than a decade, becoming a partner in 2013.
After closing its Seoul office and severing ties with Shanghai-based Yuanda China Law last year, McDermott lacked a physical Asia presence, but in 2021, it received a license to operate in Singapore.
Since then, it has poached proven talent, hiring Ignatius Hwang and Merrick White from Squire Patton Boggs and King & Spalding, respectively.
