Clyde & Co boosts regulatory and investigations offering with new hire in Singapore

Global firm Clyde & Co is further expanding its regulatory and investigations offering with the partner hire of Weiyi Tan in Singapore.  

As a corporate investigations and regulatory compliance specialist, Tan will further boost the firm’s global regulatory and investigations practice and form an integral part of the global sanctions team. She advises clients on investigations into corruption, money laundering, employee misconduct, fraud, and other white-collar offences, and assists with the response to enforcement and regulatory authorities in the context of government investigations.

Tan has experience dealing with the Singapore Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau, the Commercial Affairs Department, the Competition Commission of Singapore, and the Monetary Authority of Singapore. She has handled matters involving investigations by the US Department of Justice, the UK Serious Fraud Office, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, and Indonesia’s Corruption Eradication Commission, KPK.

She also represents clients in litigation and arbitration proceedings and has been appointed to the panels of the Singapore Mediation Centre and the Singapore International Arbitration Centre. She is qualified in Singapore, England and Wales and the State of New York. 

 “I am excited to join a firm with a global regulatory & investigations and sanctions offering,” said Tan. “The firm’s platform will enable me to serve client needs and build a strong practice out of Singapore, servicing the Asia Pacific region.”

Tan joins Clyde & Co’s Singapore office from Harry Elias LLP – formerly Eversheds Harry Elias LLP – and has previously been a partner at Baker McKenzie.

“Businesses are having to face an increased regulatory burden across the sectors and geographies in which they operate,” said John Whittaker, co-chair of the global regulatory & investigations practice. “Weiyi’s hire will enable us to develop our leading position in the regulatory space and to continue supporting our clients as they get to grips with this shifting regulatory landscape.”

Leon Alexander, a partner in Clyde & Co’s Singapore office added: “Our clients operate in highly regulated markets across a number of sectors and Weiyi’s appointment further enhances Clyde & Co’s capacity to assist clients across the Asia Pacific region with navigating the increasingly complex regulatory landscape.”

Weiyi serves as President of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ Singapore Chapter and regularly speaks at the ACFE’s Global and APAC Fraud Conferences.
