Watson Farley & Williams has deepened its bench in Singapore with the addition of projects partner Merrick White, most recently a partner at McDermott Will & Emery.

White, who had practised as a partner at McDermott for close to three years, specialises in global oil, gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG), refining and petrochemical project development. He has advised on all aspects of energy-related projects and transactions, including the acquisition and disposal of energy assets and the granting of upstream concession agreements.

The Singapore-based lawyer, who has become the 14th partner at Watson Farley’s Singapore office with now a 33-strong lawyer team, had served as a partner at King & Spalding and Clifford Chance before his time at McDermott.

In 2012, while still practising at Clifford Chance before his move to King & Spalding in the same year, he had led the UK firm’s Singapore team in advising Nagarjuna Oil Corporation on Trafigura’s USD130 million investment into its oil refinery then being constructed in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

As a King & Spalding Singapore-based partner in 2015, he co-led a team advising BW Gas on its tender to provide Egyptian Natural Gas with LNG regasification services utilising a floating storage regasification unit in Egypt.
