Ng and Prakasam will be underwriters for the Singapore business, focusing on M&A insurance. Culas will focus on the same areas, but working from Sydney.

William Lewis, head of Asia Pacific for Liberty GTS, commented: “Our Asia Pacific office continues to go from strength to strength and the expansion of our team will be hugely beneficial to our clients. With the addition of Damian, Sanjeve, and Alexandra to our team we have one of the largest M&A underwriting teams in Asia Pacific.”

He added: “They all bring with them significant M&A underwriting experience and will be a fantastic addition to the team as we continue to expand our business across the region to help protect our customers from the complex risks they face in today’s M&A market.”

Prior to joining Liberty GTS, Ng was an associate director at a top-tier Singapore law firm, where he worked on a broad range of corporate and commercial matters, with a particular focus on mergers and acquisitions. Prakasam, meanwhile, was a corporate lawyer in two major law firms in Malaysia, where he advised on various corporate matters in relation to mergers and acquisitions, equity capital markets, corporate restructurings, and all other legal aspects of corporate and commercial transactions. Prior to joining Liberty GTS, Culas worked on large corporate and M&A transactions with a focus on private equity and private M&A.
