Singapore, 18th May 2021
Trinity International is continuing to grow its footprint globally and is delighted to announce that it is now represented in Singapore. Maxime Damphousse is joining the team to help expand the practice’s capacity to serve new and existing clients in the wider Asia region.
Maxime’s appointment follows a number of recent senior hires that saw Trinity grow its London and Washington DC offices and bolster its Latin America and Caribbean team and the joining this month of two new partners to its Paris office.
Trinity’s London partners noted:
“Trinity International was founded as an emerging markets law firm, led by senior lawyers, with an innovative approach to managing transactions in markets new to international investors. With Max joining us in Singapore, we are seeking to replicate this model across the wider Asian market and to more rapidly serve our growing client base in the region. Our success to date demonstrates the value we can bring to projects and transactions in markets around the world, and not just in our traditional markets. Across our growing footprint, our clients continue to value Trinity for trusted, insightful and specialist advice and we believe these qualities will support our growth in the future.”
New joiner Maxime Damphousse, adds:
“I’m delighted to join Trinity International and help it expand in Asia, by bringing its expertise to clients and projects in this part of the world. Trinity’s focus on emerging markets is unique amongst international law firms and, undoubtedly, relevant in the context of Asia’s growth and development. This is what attracted me to join Trinity’s team and I look forward to working with Trinity on the many opportunities in this region.”
