Law firm Addleshaw Goddard has promoted Yunus Seedat to head of UK private equity following his predecessor’s switch to launch the company’s Hong Kong operations.
Yunus, who joined the firm in 2001, has worked for clients including 3i, Barclays Private Equity, Gresham, Bridgepoint and Phoenix Private Equity.
He was previously a partner in the firm’s Leeds office in the north of England.
Former PE head Andrew Carpenter will run the firm’s new Hong Kong office and international division, and will split his time between there and the company’s other global bases in Oman, Singapore and Dubai.
