Singapore Big Five Law Firm Dentons Rodyk are today announcing the arrival of senior corporate lawyers Evelyn Ang and Emily Low. Together with six other lawyers, they join Dentons Rodyk from Big Four accounting firm EY’s Singapore law practice, Atlas Asia Law Corporation (AALC). The news follows Dentons' recently launched combination with leading Vietnamese law firm LuatViet, as the Firm pursues its goal of being the leading pan-ASEAN law firm.

Evelyn Ang, previously Managing Director at AALC re-joins Dentons Rodyk as Senior Partner in the Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) practice. Having spent close to a decade at Dentons Rodyk, Evelyn left the firm in 2018 and established AALC, an independent member firm of EY. Highly regarded as a leading practitioner in this field by international publications such as Chambers Asia-Pacific and IFLR1000, Evelyn’s areas of focus at Dentons Rodyk encompass private & public M&As, public take-overs, corporate restructuring exercises and delistings.

Together with Evelyn, former AALC Director Emily Low joins the firm as Senior Partner in the Investment Funds practice. With over 20 years of experience in financial and corporate services, Emily was appointed Director of AALC in 2020, where she advised on the formation of a wide variety of funds, including private equity, hedge funds, real estate and infrastructure funds as well as hybrid structures and platforms.

Dentons Rodyk is also delighted to welcome AALC’s former Director Glenda Lee as Partner, to the firm. Like Evelyn, Glenda begins her second chapter at Dentons Rodyk in the M&A practice, having left initially in 2018 for AALC.

Experienced in domestic and cross-border M&As and corporate finance transactions, Glenda advises regularly on private equity and venture capital investments, JVs, corporate restructuring exercises, regulatory, compliance and other general corporate matters.

Senior Associates Ng Xin Lei and Claire Tan, along with Associates Rachel TanKo Yuen Hyung and Joey Tam join the Dentons Rodyk team too, boosting the firm’s Corporate practice.

Dentons Global Vice Chair & ASEAN CEO Gerald Singham said: “It is with absolute delight that we announce the arrival of two exceptionally talented senior corporate lawyers, along with their teams of six lawyers, many of whom are already embedded into the Dentons Rodyk DNA. As part of the world’s largest law firm, constant growth keeps us at the forefront locally, regionally and globally.”

“Our industry-leading corporate practice is strengthened by the arrival of two brilliant legal heavyweights and six rising stars. This dynamic group of lawyers will complement the undeniably strong practice we have established here at the firm.” said Head of Dentons Rodyk’s Corporate Practice and Senior Partner, S. Sivanesan.
