Shipping and commodities-focused law firm Helmsman has expanded its corporate capabilities after hiring Lynette Koh to lead its corporate and finance practice in Singapore from Mizuho Bank, where she headed the legal function.

Koh is Helmsman's first director hire since Maureen Poh, joined the firm from Ince last year. Her practice focuses on finance needs and funding structures across industries, and she has experience in commodities and trade financing transactions.

Established in April 2019, Helmsman currently has 18 lawyers, including four directors. It also has a presence in Hong Kong via the firm Tang & Co., which was established by Tang Chong Jun in 2018.
