Squire Patton Boggs has launched a global Commodities and Shipping Group with the addition of partners Barry Stimpson and Jessica Kenworthy, who join the firm’s Singapore office from Reed Smith.
“Barry and Jessica are leaders in their field with sophisticated global practices and we are very excited to have them join us,” said Squire Patton Boggs’ Global Managing Partner for Clients & Strategy, Steve Mahon. “This is an area in which we already have strong capabilities in London, Australia and the US, and with the addition of this team and future hires in the pipeline, we expect to very quickly ascend to become one of the premier firms in the commodities and shipping space,” added Chairman and Global Chief Executive Officer, Mark Ruehlmann.
The Commodities and Shipping Group will provide a full range of legal services on all aspects of international trade and shipping and across all commodity sectors, including advice and assistance with transactions, corporate matters, trade finance, litigation and arbitration, regulatory matters, environmental law, renewable energy, derivatives and projects.
