Global offshore law firm Harneys has appointed James Noble as managing partner of its Singapore office.

This follows Lisa Pearce’s retirement who had managed the office since its inception in 2014.

Mr Noble joined Harneys’ in 2010 as an associate in the litigation and restructuring practice group in the Cayman Islands. He relocated to the firm's Hong Kong office in 2012, before moving to Singapore last year to lead the office’s newly established litigation and restructuring practice.

He has nearly 20 years’ experience working on a range of commercial disputes including financial services litigation, trust and estate disputes, and insolvency and restructuring. Mr Noble also specialises in complex and high value shareholder litigation, asset recovery, and cross border enforcement and insolvency.

Chairman, Peter Tarn, commented: “Since relocating to our Singapore office in 2018, James has been instrumental in developing the Litigation and Restructuring team with his steadfast commitment and strategic vision. Under his stewardship, the Singapore office will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Mr Noble added: “I am delighted to be leading the way for Harneys’ Singapore office at an exciting time of growth and expansion for us in the Southeast Asia region. On behalf of the team, I would like to thank Lisa for making the office the success it is today, and to wish her a long and happy retirement.”

Harneys launched its Asia offering in 2005 with the opening of its Hong Kong office and has since expanded into Singapore and Shanghai.
