Addleshaw Goddard has hired construction specialist Chau Ee Lee to join its Singapore team as a partner. He leaves King & Wood Mallesons’ Beijing office after 3 years.

Chau works in the construction, infrastructure, energy and project development space. Additionally, he is experienced in dispute resolution and international arbitration.

Prior to joining King & Wood Mallesons Beijing in 2016, Chau was the head of the construction and engineering group at Drew & Napier.

With Chau on board, the Singapore office of UK-based Addleshaw Goddard now has two partners and one legal director. Earlier this year it hired infrastructure partner Ton van den Bosch from Ince & Co.
