Singapore > Energy: foreign firms Tier 1

Ashurst LLP continues to demonstrate a huge commitment to the energy sector. Having brought in senior figure Michael Harrison from the Sydney office in January 2020, it then followed this up by relocating project development specialist Richard Guit to Singapore from Perth in December 2020, and it hired project finance partner Andrew Roche from Latham & Watkins LLP in January 2021. This expansion of the team has enabled the firm to cement its leading position in gas and LNG across Asia Pacific, and achieve further growth in renewables, mining and power infrastructure. The Singapore group continues to be active in gas-to-power projects, notably in Indonesia, Vietnam, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and it is increasingly focused on LNG-import arrangements for Chinese national oil companies (NOCs). Daniel Reinbott remains a market leader in LNG projects and transactions, with counsel Jessica Ham offering senior-level support. Alfred NG is another notable name in project finance. Counsel Giles Ashman is also a key team member.
