December 20, 2022Firm News

Jolyn Ang, Singapore corporate associate, has been recognized by Asian Legal Business in its inaugural list as one of Singapore’s Rising Stars for 2022. The list features Singapore’s next-generation lawyers under 40 for their high-quality work.

In the feature, Gunderson Dettmer client Steven Wongsoredjo, CEO of Aplikasi Super, said “Jolyn has my highest recommendation for her work ethic and quality – she is always working at the fastest pace.” 

Rajive Keshup, Investment Director at Cathay Innovation, said “Investing in this climate is an incredibly tough business but having dependable counsel is a complete game changer. I’ve been working with Jolyn for over two years and her mastery of legal frameworks has enabled us to remain incredibly founder friendly while ensuring we have complete protections in place around legal downside risk. In SEA we exclusively work with Gunderson and that’s largely due to Jolyn being an integral part of that team.  We very much consider her an extension of ours.”

Among her accomplishments, Jolyn is the youngest attorney to be appointed as adjunct faculty at the Singapore Management University Lee Kong Chian School of Business, where she teaches a course on negotiating early-stage financings. She is also a mentor with the Insignia Ventures Academy and the Institute of Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
