With particular strength in project financing work, the team at White & Case Pte. Ltd. is regularly instructed to advise on some of the largest and most cutting-edge projects in Asia. The Singapore office has been the focus of much recent consolidation at the senior level; following the relocation of Saul Daniel – who co-heads the Asia Pacific energy industry group – from Houston in May 2020, the team welcomed Tim Fourteau and Jamie Franklin, both formerly of Latham & Watkins LLP, in December 2020. They join such established names as Matthew OsborneFergus Smith and associate Cristian Blumm. Areas of particular expertise and growth for the group include renewables, particularly offshore wind, oil and gas, and LNG. Brendan Quinn, who acts as the department lead for project finance in the Asia Pacific region, oversees matters from the Melbourne office, which is also home to key contact Andrew Clark.
