Beijing-headquartered Han Kun Law Offices has opened an office in Singapore, the firm’s seventh location, and its first overseas branch.

The office is manned by managing partner Chen Dafei, who was earlier splitting his time between the firm’s Beijing and Hong Kong offices, and Yu Lan (pictured), who was most recently a partner at Singapore’s Duane Morris & Selvam.

Chen, who joined Han Kun in 2006, mainly provides legal services in capital markets, life sciences and healthcare, mergers and acquisitions, and offshore investments.

Meanwhile, Yu focuses on private wealth management, financial services, and cross-border transactions. She acts for high- and ultra-high-net-worth individuals, family offices, and multinational companies.

In a statement, Han Kun said that the Singapore office would work closely with the firm’s other offices to meet the demand for cross-border investments between China, Singapore, and Southeast Asia. The Singapore office will also provide services to Han Kun’s Chinese clients investing overseas and investors from Singapore looking to tap into the Chinese market.

Han Kun has become the latest international firm to open in Singapore, the launch coming about two months after Korea's Shin & Kim and Portugal's Morais Leitão, Galvão Teles, Soares da Silva & Associados made their own announcements in April.
