PK Wong & Associates, previously a member of Ernst & Young’s global network, has merged with boutique dispute resolution and insolvency firm Nair & Co, forming a full-service law firm named PK Wong & Nair.
The merged firm, with a total of 23 lawyers, will be led by PK Wong managing director Mark Wong and Nair & Co founder Suresh Nair, as co-managing directors.
PK Wong specializes in conveyancing and property law, corporate and commercial, estate planning and trusts, intellectual property, litigation and arbitration. Led by Wong, the firm was a part of the EY Global network from 2014 to 2018.
Litigation specialist Nair established his own legal practice, Nair & Co, in October 2017. He was previously a partner at Advocatus Law, and director and head of the litigation department at Straits Law Practice. Originally the firm focused on disputes and insolvency, then added shipping in 2018.
Wong said: “The addition of the disputes team from Nair & Co will complement PK Wong & Associates’ existing disputes capabilities and also provide Nair & Co’s clients with one-stop corporate and commercial capability.”
PK Wong & Nair is a member of First Law International, a global legal network of independent law firms worldwide covering more than 100 jurisdictions in the Asia-Pacific, the UK and the US.
