King & Spalding has opened a new office in Singapore. It is headed by its global energy practice leader, Philip Weems, who formerly served as managing partner in the firm’s Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Riyadh offices.
International transactions partner Daniel Rogers is also joining the new office from Houston, along with partner John Savage, formerly of Shearman & Sterling. He was vice chair of international arbitration at his former firm and headed its Asia disputes practice, reports the Atlanta Business Journal.
“Singapore’s establishment as a key international arbitration center, coupled with a steady increase in energy and infrastructure investment throughout the region, make it a compelling location for the continued expansion of our energy and arbitration practices,” says Robert Hays Jr., the chairman of King & Spalding, in a law firm press release today.
The new office is the eighth foreign location for King & Spalding.
