Bedell Cristin grows Singapore team with senior hire
Bedell Cristin has appointed Craig Paynter as a senior associate in the firm’s Singapore office.
Paynter joins from Gowling WLG where he was the principal associate in the Singapore private client team. He specialises in advising Southeast Asian high-net-worth individuals, families and corporations on structuring and governance solutions to hold their multi-jurisdictional asset holdings, including family businesses and private wealth trusts.
Kristian Wilson, partner in Bedell Cristin’s Singapore office commented: “Craig’s appointment also reflects our approach to ensuring we hire the best talent, who not only understand overseas markets, but have real experience in their home jurisdictions. To that extent, Craig and I have, between us, not only lived and worked in Singapore for a number of years but have lived and worked in all our home jurisdictions of Jersey, Guernsey, and the BVI.”
