Arun Nigam

The founder of the Firm is Arun Nigam who has over thirty years legal practice in England, Hong Kong and Singapore and is qualified to practice English, Hong Kong, Indian, Australian and Singapore law.

Arun was born in London of Indian and German parents and educated at St Paul’s School, London and Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge University.  He has global legal experience working with leading international law firms and was a partner with Baker & McKenzie and Freehills in Singapore.  He worked with Norton Rose in London after qualifying as a solicitor and was a Senior Consultant with Sidley Austin in Hong Kong for over nine years before setting up his firm.

Arun has a wide range of experience in capital markets, structured finance, general banking, syndicated lending, pre-IPO financing, asset and project finance, debt restructuring, funds, trustee and corporate and commercial work in Europe and Asia including drafting innovative financing, corporate and commercial documents for crossborder transactions.

His capital market practice has in particular focused on trustee advisory work on structured finance and capital market transactions including advising various trustee parties on Regulation S and Rule 144A transactions in Korea, India, Taiwan and other Asian countries.  Since 1982, he has been active in doing Indian transactions including representing arrangers, issues and trustees on GDR and FCCB issues.

He has extensive knowledge of the Indian markets and influential contacts with many Indian and overseas leading law firms, banks and investment houses and is well respected in the financial and legal communities in Hong Kong and Asia.  He also has strong working relationships with top law firms in India and China (including a PRC firm which specialises in areas such as mining and natural resources, media and telecommunications, employment, and outbound investments from China). 

The Firm

Through these relationships and contacts, Arun Nigam Associates has access to a large network of lawyers practising in India, China and other jurisdictions in the world and will stand out as one of the few firms in Hong Kong which can, under one roof, provide legal services to clients who are doing or planning to do business in, or between, these two fast growing economic giants.

The Firm has a team of lawyers who are conversant in English, Hindi, Mandarin and Cantonese and bring to the Firm a long term commitment, professional excellence and diversity to its clients.
