Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) has added capital markets specialist Xavier Amadei as a partner in Singapore from Baker McKenzie Wong & Leow.
Amadei is HSF’s second partner hire in a matter of weeks: Project finance specialist Rupert Baker recently re-joined the firm as a partner in Singapore from the Japanese conglomerate SoftBank Group.
An expert in equity, debt and equity-linked offerings, Amadei joined Baker McKenzie in 2019. Prior to that, he spent nearly 15 years at Linklaters in the U.S., Hong Kong, and Singapore. He was previously at White & Case.
