Evelyn Ang, previously a senior partner at Dentons Rodyk & Davidson, has set up Atlas Asia Law Corporation, which will join the global EY network as an independent member firm.

Ang advises on corporate commercial, M&A and corporate finance transactions, and will work closely with EY’s assurance, tax, transactions and advisory teams to provide commercially focused advice to clients in Singapore and in ASEAN.

Max Loh, EY ASEAN and Singapore managing partner, said Ang’s corporate track record would be immensely beneficial for clients looking to grow and expand in the region.

Ang, now managing director of Atlas Asia Law Corporation, said: “I am excited to be joining the global EY network at this time and help clients solve some of their toughest business challenges by providing legal advice to complement the adjacent services in other parts of EY.”
