Global law firm Clyde & Co has announced the partner hire of Ton van den Bosch in Singapore, as it seeks to strengthen its energy, marine and natural resources practice in the Asia Pacific (Apac) region.

Van den Bosch joins from Addleshaw Goddard, where he was managing partner of the Singapore office. Before this, he spent two years at Ince & Co where he was of counsel as well as heading its global terminals and maritime infrastructure practice and its energy and projects team in South and Southeast Asia. His prior experience includes 10 years with international law firms in Singapore, Amsterdam, New York and Jakarta, over a decade of experience as general counsel of a global oil and gas contractor and, more recently, of a global terminal operator headquartered in the Philippines.

In his new role, based in Clyde & Co’s Singapore office, van den Bosch will support clients across the Asia Pacific region and beyond.

Welcoming him to the firm, Simon McConnell, partner and chair of Clyde & Co’s Apac board, says: “Ton’s expertise perfectly complements and further enhances our existing experience. We have been working for clients in the shipping, marine, and natural resources sectors in Asia Pacific for over three decades, and Ton’s hire will further strengthen our leading practice in the region and no doubt his extensive experience will be invaluable to clients here.”

Clyde & Co says this hire is the latest in a series for its Singapore office, with the firm recently relocating partner and marine insurance litigator Andrew Bicknell from London, promoting insurance and reinsurance dispute resolution specialist Vanessa Lim to partner, and hiring corporate investigations, regulatory compliance and commercial disputes partner Weiyi Tan.
