Chambers Asia-Pacific 2022

Overview

Alexander McMyn is the Executive Partner of the Singapore office of the Firm and is a Partner in White & Case's Asia Debt Finance and Restructuring practice, based in Singapore.

Alexander advises lenders, sponsors, and borrowers on a wide range of transactions across the Asia-Pacific region. With more than fourteen years' experience advising from Singapore, he has worked on deals involving a number of jurisdictions, with a particular focus on Singapore, India, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

Alexander advises on a range of financings: clients have turned to him for assistance on acquisition and leveraged financings, general corporate loans, structured and limited-recourse financings, as well as fund-related products and investments related to infrastructure and commodities. As the lending market in Asia has evolved, these financings have often been deployed simultaneously with the acquisition by creditors of equity (or equity-linked) interests – Alexander often works with other specialists on the structuring and execution of such arrangements.

As market conditions have altered over time, Alexander has also built considerable experience working on the restructuring, workout and sale and purchase of interests in defaulted financings.
