SPB picks up commodities duo from HFW in Singapore, Australia

Squire Patton Boggs has hired commodities lawyers Ivan Chia and Hazel Brewers as partners from HFW in Singapore and Brisbane, respectively.

Chia joined HFW in January 2018 from Watson, Farley & Williams, where he spent about a decade. Focusing on international energy, renewables and infrastructure projects, Chia advises on development, procurement, joint venture and M&A matters.

The news of Chia’s hire in Singapore comes around the time Squire Patton Boggs lost three more lawyers to McDermott Will & Emery’s newly opened office in Singapore.
