Jonathan Goacher joins Stephenson Harwood as partner


Law firm Stephenson Harwood has strengthened its regional M&A practice with the arrival of partner Jonathan Goacher.

Jonathan is a M&A and commercial lawyer who advises clients on a broad range of corporate matters in the Asia Pacific region (APAC). He has a particular focus on the insurance sector and advises insurers, brokers, loss adjusters and various other sector participants on their regional corporate strategies across APAC, as well as advising on certain regulatory and US sanctions matters. Jonathan has spent more than 20 years assisting clients on matters throughout the Asia Pacific region, including in China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

"Stephenson Harwood has a highly-regarded regional M&A practice, and Jonathan's experience and knowledge base will strengthen the specialist support that we provide to our clients," said Daryll Ng, Stephenson Harwood's Singapore office managing partner.

"We have found that the M&A markets across Southeast Asia continue to be buoyant despite global trends," said partner Tom Platts, Stephenson Harwood's head of M&A for Southeast Asia. "Jonathan's appointment will add further depth to our highly-regarded regional financial services practice. To complement his M&A expertise, Jonathan is one of only a handful of international sanctions experts in Southeast Asia, which will be of considerable benefit to our clients in the region and enhances Stephenson Harwood's strong global sanctions expertise."

Stephenson Harwood's award-winning Southeast Asia mergers and acquisitions team has a well-established track record of advising on all forms of M&A and commercial transactions in Singapore, across Asia and internationally. The team provides advice at every stage of the process, from planning and due diligence to post-completion integration.
