Andrew Lee, a partner in Hill Dickinson’s Marine and Trade team, based in Singapore, has been appointed as the new head of the office, succeeding Tony Goldsmith who will return to London following his promotion to Head of the Marine and Trade division.
Lee has been with Hill Dickinson and its merger firm, Hill Taylor Dickinson, since the start of his legal career in 2001. He worked for the company in London and Dubai before relocating to Singapore in 2009 as a co-founder of the firm’s new office, making partner in 2010.
Commenting on his new role, Lee said: ‘I am pleased to have been appointed as head of Hill Dickinson’s Singapore practice. Despite the severe disruption to the markets created by the Covid-19 pandemic, Singapore remains one of the world’s most vibrant maritime centres and as a leading maritime law firm it is a tremendously exciting place to be.
‘Tony has overseen a period of rapid growth of our Singapore office, having expanded the practice from just two lawyers to 15 during his time as office head. As the sector begins to recover, I am very much looking forward to managing our next phase of growth.’
