RPC's Singapore office welcomes new tech partner

RPC has hired Nicholas Lauw as a partner in its commercial group, specialising in technology. He joins the firm's joint legal venture RPC Premier Law in Singapore.

With more than 16 years' international experience, Lauw has a broad practice covering a mix of high value contentious and non-contentious intellectual property and technology-related work. He will join RPC's technology practice, which provides a full technology offering of digital, data, consumer and regulatory advice alongside transactional and dispute support to major global technology players through to start-ups and high-profile blue-chip companies across the globe.

Lauw joins RPC from Rajah & Tann, where he was a partner practicing entertainment and media, intellectual property and technology law.

"I am thrilled that Nicholas has agreed to join our rapidly-growing offices in Asia, where we have doubled our number of partners in the last two years, with nine new partners joining in Singapore and Hong Kong,” said Antony Sassi, RPC's Asia managing partner. "Nicholas' arrival is of strategic importance as we look to build out our award-winning technology practice led globally by Jeremy Drew spanning across RPC's four offices. We are continuing to see an uptick in our clients' ambitions to unlock new opportunities as Singapore continues to grow as a commercial tech hub in the region. I have no doubt Nicholas will be a real asset in supporting our clients to achieve their ambitions."

Lauw is the eighth new partner to join the firm in the last seven months across its commercial and insurance groups, in addition to 10 promotions to the partnership in May. RPC now has 125 partners across its four offices.

"RPC has offered me an exciting platform to build-out my practice and work within a leading technology group underpinned by a brilliant group of talented lawyers that are commercial, people-focused and collaborative at their core," said Lauw.
