Baker McKenzie Wong & Leow, the member firm of Baker McKenzie International in Singapore, has strengthened its Information, Technology & Communications (IT/C) capabilities
with the arrival of Anne Petterd as a Principal.
Anne has been with Baker McKenzie for 16 years having joined the Sydney office in 2001. She is a member of the Firm's Asia Pacific International Commercial & Trade Steering Committee and is part of our global Technology, Media & Telecommunications industry group. Anne has also spent 18 months in the firm's London office.
Anne has a strong track record advising on regional trade and technology issues. Her practice focuses on technology, telecommunications, customs and export controls, international sanctions, consumer and commercial law issues.
Commenting on her arrival, Andy Leck, Managing Principal in Singapore, said: "We are delighted to welcome Anne to the Singapore office. Anne has extensive experience in Asia Pacific and her move here is a natural step to continue to build her practice and support clients as they operate regionally from Singapore."
"Singapore is a key hub for technology clients operating in Asia Pacific. We are responding to the regional issues which our clients face and are mobilising our talent in the region accordingly.” Mr Leck continued.
Head of the Corporate & Securities Practice Group in Singapore, Andrew Martin, adds "We have a very busy IT/C practice in Singapore, led by Ken Chia, advising on local regulations as well as pan-regional IT/C matters. Anne's diverse practice, track record and client connections will add depth to our practice."
"With Anne’s experience in IT/C issues, trade and commerce, we further expand our capabilities to support our clients as they operate here in Singapore and across the region.”
I'm thrilled to join the Singapore office and continue to build my practice in such an important regional hub for trade, commerce and technology.
“I'm delighted to have the opportunity to move into a new market and continue to work with our global team to support our clients. This is a fast paced industry and being based in a regional hub will allow me to stay tapped into issues to help clients as they operate from Singapore, Australia or elsewhere."
