PwC has named Rachel Eng, managing director of its Singapore member law firm Eng and Co., to its Global Legal Leadership team. In her new role, she will assist in driving the growth and expansion of PwC’s Global Legal Service network.

Last year, Eng exited Singapore Big Four law firm WongPartnership, where she was a former managing partner and spent more than two decades, to set up her firm as part of the PwC global network.

PwC has also promoted Tony O’Malley, currently Legal Services Leader for PwC’s legal practice in Australia and the Asia-Pacific, to Global Leader of PwC’s Global Legal Services network. Half of the new eight-person leadership team will be from the Asia-Pacific region as a result.

PwC’s Global Legal Service network currently has over 3,600 lawyers across 98 countries.
