Singapore’s RHTLaw Taylor Wessing has hired Yang Eu Jin as a partner and co-head of the firm’s capital markets practice.
Yang joins from Singapore-based Overseas Education Ltd., an international school operator, where he was general counsel and executive director. He joined the company in 2011 and worked alongside external counsel RHTLaw Taylor Wessing on its $58 million listing on the Singapore Exchange in 2013.
Before moving in-house, Yang practiced at Singaporean firm KhattarWong, now known as Withers KhattarWong, since 2001 and made partner in 2005. RHTLaw itself was founded in 2011 by a group of former KhattarWong partners led by managing partner Tan Chong Huat. The following year, the firm joined Anglo-German legal giant Taylor Wessing’s global alliance network and rebranded itself RHTLaw Taylor Wessing.
Yang will co-lead RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s capital markets practice with partner Ch’ng Li-Ling. In addition to Yang, Ch’ng and Tan, partners Chew Kok Liang and Amanda Chen also advise on capital markets deals.
