Ince & Co mark 15 years in Singapore

Ince & Co mark 15 years in Singapore

Singapore: International law firm Ince & Co celebrated the 15th anniversary of the opening of its office at the Hitachi Tower in Singapore yesterday. "We are delighted to be celebrating our first 15 years in Singapore," said Richard Lovell (pictured), who leads the Singapore partner team. " The upturn in the economy in South-East Asia has opened up new opportunities for our clients. Therefore as well as providing commercial legal advice to the shipping community here, we are increasingly working with international traders, banks and finance houses, suppliers to the energy industry and with the insurance and reinsurance market, as well as advising a wide range of businesses. We are looking forward to the next 15 years with optimism and we anticipate further growth."

The company also used the occasion to welcome in four new members to its team - Simon Spark, Ian Teo, John Simpson and Reza Ispahani.


Spark, who has been a partner in the firm for the last five years and heads the firm's global LNG group, is an experienced contentious and non-contentious dry shipping and energy lawyer with a global client base.  Teo has had four years working with a leading local law firm, while Simpson and Ispahani have both been transferred over from Ince's London headquarters. The company also expects to strengthen its team further with the appointment of an experienced energy lawyer.

Peter Rogan, a senior partner at Ince said "We are delighted to have expanded and strengthened our Singapore team in response to market demand and the requirements of our many clients in South East Asia. We look forward to increasing our insurance and energy business."  [16/10/07]
