Lee, who has been with the firm and its merger firm, Hill Taylor Dickinson, since 2001, worked in London and Dubai before relocating to Singapore in 2009. He was co-founder of the firm’s new office, and became partner in 2010.

Lee is a maritime and trade disputes expert with a focus on shipping, commodities, offshore/marine construction and insurance.

He commented: ‘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.'

Lee succeeds Tony Goldsmith, who will return to London permanently after he was promoted to head of the marine and trade division.

Lee added: ‘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.’
