Waltter Kulvik from Sidley Austin has been lured by Ashurst as a corporate partner in Singapore.

A counsel at Sidley, Kulvik, specializes in advising private equity firms, funds and investment banks on cross-border transactions in the infrastructure, power and real estate sectors. He was part of the team that represented a Black Rock advised fund on a $1.5 billion sale of an office tower in Singapore’s financial district to local real-estate investment trust CapitaLand Commercial Trust in 2017

Kulvik in 2016 was part of the team that advised Aboitiz Power Corp., one of the Philippines’ biggest power producers, on its acquisition and financing of a $1.2 billion stake in two local coal-fired power plants from The Blackstone Group L.P.

Prior to Sidley, Kulvik was an associate at White & Case for four years and at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in London for three years. He trained at Morrison & Foerster in London.

Mark Stanbridge, Ashurst’s Asia corporate head, said that Kulvik will help the firm capitalize on opportunities that fit with its regional strategy of focusing on the energy, infrastructure and private equity industries.
