Pinsent Masons has expanded its energy resources and infrastructure practice with the appointment of Brian Scott as corporate partner in Singapore from Herbert Smith Freehills.
Scott, who focuses on oil and gas, spent 14 years with Herbert Smith Freehills, including seven years at the firm’s associated firm in Indonesia, Hiswara Bunjamin Tandjung. He will be relocating to Perth in 2019, but still covering the Asia-Pacific region.
Scott’s arrival takes the total number of partners at Pinsent Masons’ Singapore office to 13. Its joint law venture firm in Singapore, Pinsent Masons MPillay, has an additional three partners.
