Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher is adding an oil and gas partner to its Singapore office.
Brad Roach is joining Gibson Dunn from Hogan Lovells, where he was head of the Southeast Asia oil and gas practice. He will start in August.
Roach has worked on a range of energy and infrastructure projects, with a particular emphasis on liquefied natural gas. In 2011, he advised Indonesian state-owned enterprise PT Medco Energi Internasional on a $2.8 billion joint LNG project in the country’s Sulawesi province, which included fellow SOE PT Pertamina, Japanese conglomerate Mitsubishi Corp. and Korea Gas Corp.
Prior to joining the former Lovells in 2008, Roach worked in White & Case’s Singapore office for two years, first as a counsel, then as a partner. Before that, he was a counsel in the Singapore office of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.
Gibson Dunn’s Singapore office, launched in 2008, now counts eleven lawyers, including four partners. Earier this year, the firm was one of the four firms selected by the Singaporean government to become a Qualifying Foreign Law Practice permitted to practice local law.
Worldwide, Los Angeles-based Gibson Dunn has close to 1,100 lawyers in 18 offices.
