Clyde & Co. has recruited an insurance partner for its Singapore office.
Ian Roberts, previously a London partner with Mayer Brown, will lead Clyde’s non-marine insurance practice in Southeast Asia. He advises mainly on claims in the property, construction and engineering area.
Roberts began his law career at DLA Piper’s London office in 2002, moving to Mayer Brown in London a year later. In 2005, he left for Sydney to work at the firm now known as Allens, but he returned to Mayer Brown in London two years later. He became a partner in 2011.
London-based Clyde’s Singapore office comprises 21 lawyers, including eight partners. The firm employs more than 1,400 lawyers in 30 offices.
