Jolyn is a corporate associate based in our Singapore office.
Jolyn represents both investors and emerging growth companies on corporate transactions at all stages of a company’s life cycle from conception to exit. Transactions range from structuring and set-up at conception, convertible loans at the seed stage, debt and equity financings, strategic M&A and joint ventures at the growth stage, and secondaries, trade sales and IPOs at the exit stage.
Prior to joining Gunderson Dettmer, Jolyn trained and practised at another top international firm, where she advised clients on a broad range of corporate transactions including cross-border M&A, financings, reorganizations and joint ventures, with a particular focus on M&A, PE/VC and startup transactions.
Jolyn read law at the National University of Singapore on a NUS Undergraduate Scholarship and graduated on the Overall Dean’s List. She also spent a semester at Northwestern Law and a summer with NYU School of Law. While at law school, with a keen interest in contract law, corporate and financial law and comparative law, she was actively involved in academic research in these areas. In her last year of law school, she wrote an academic paper on aviation finance law that was subsequently published in the Journal of Air Law & Commerce in 2014.
As an avid learner of Asian languages (she is fluent in English, Mandarin Chinese and Korean), she puts her language capabilities to good use in developing our practice in Asia. She is called to the Singapore Bar.
