White & Case Enters Australia

Global law firm White & Case has confirmed its new offices in Australia will open in Melbourne and Sydney on December 1, 2016 and in early 2017.

The expansion aligns with White & Case's strategy in Asia-Pacific to build on its global strengths and continue developing its client offering. The Firm’s Asia-Pacific presence includes offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo, as well as an association in Jakarta.

White & Case had previously announced that its Global Energy, Infrastructure & Project Finance Practice and Asia-Pacific business were being expanded with the arrival of ten new partners from Herbert Smith Freehills, who will be based in the new Australia offices in Melbourne and Sydney, and in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Joining the firm will be Adeline Pang, Ged Cochrane and Michelle Keen, who will join the Firm as partners.

Pivot to Asia

“Our ambition is to build a top-tier energy, infrastructure and project finance practice in Australia, with a pivot north towards Asia more generally, and the addition of Adeline, Ged and Michelle is a great start for us.” Said Art Scavone White & Case partner, who leads the Firm’s Global Energy, Infrastructure & Project Finance Practice

Pang focuses her practice on energy and infrastructure project development; Cochrane advises clients on the acquisition and project financing of major energy and infrastructure projects; and Keen’s practice is focused on environmental planning and permitting.
