Hogan Lovells has hired capital markets partner Biswajit Chatterjee into its corporate and finance practice in Singapore. Chatterjee joins the law firm from Squire Patton Boggs, where he currently serves as co-chair of the firm's India practice and heads the Southeast Asia corporate practice.
Qualified in New York and India, Chatterjee specializes in capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, and private equity transactions. He has advised on some of the largest equity and debt offerings in India and Southeast Asia.
Singapore is Hogan Lovells’ regional hub for India, Southeast Asia, and South Asia. Chatterjee will work closely with Stephanie Keen, head of corporate & finance for Asia-Pacific, and colleagues across the firm’s integrated global India desk, from Northern California to the East Coast of Australia.
Recent deals led by the team in the region include: advising leading Indian digital commerce entity Flipkart on almost US$2 billion of fund-raisings in 2020, advising Facebook on a US$5.7 billion investment for a 9.99% stake in Jio Platforms, and supporting Groupe ADP on a share purchase agreement to acquire a 49% stake in GMR Airports, a major Indian airport group, for around €1.36 billion (US$1.6 billion).
