Addleshaw Goddard will welcome in February one of the practice leaders of an international firm, who’s based in Singapore.
Ton Van den Bosch will join the UK giant’s partnership next month, boosting the firm’s corporate practice. He is moving from Ince & Co, where he is of counsel and head of the global terminals and maritime infrastructure practice and the South and Southeast Asian energy and projects team.
Van den Bosch has particular expertise in the energy and utilities sector and the transportation and infrastructure sector.
Prior to Ince & Co, he was general counsel for International Container Terminal Services in Manila, handling all legal matters of the company around the world, including PPPs, concessions, transactions, project financing, construction, compliance, and development of ports and terminals in the Americas, Africa, and Asia.
He was also general counsel for Bluewater Energy Services in Amsterdam, legal director for the Asia-Pacific region for TNT based in Amsterdam, and solicitor at Allen & Overy in Singapore, Amsterdam, and New York.
Addleshaw Goddard said that the appointment shows its commitment to its Asia practice, which recently added corporate partner Lance Jiang and legal director Janie Wong in Hong Kong.
“Southeast Asia is an exciting market and Ton's proven track record of self-generating business opportunities, coupled with his experience in areas that will see us penetrate new sectors in the region, means we can grow our corporate offering in the region and strengthen links with the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council), India, and Africa. Our plans to be a double-digit partner business by FY 2021 are on course and we will continue to look for the right talent to achieve this aim,” said Bob Charlton, Addleshaw Goddard’s Asia regional head.
