U.S. law firm Jones Day has hired energy expert Paul Greening as a partner in its Singapore office from Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld.

With nearly two decades of experience, Greening advises on international energy, utilities and infrastructure projects with emphasis on energy-related cross-border M&A, divestitures, oil and gas contracts, including natural gas and LNG sale and purchase agreements, and LNG project development.

Greening worked for Linklaters and Vinson & Elkins before joining Akin Gump as a partner in Hong Kong in 2015.

This addition has brought the number of Jones Day partners in Singapore to seven. Last year, the office saw the exit of two partners: Arbitration expert Matthew Skinner moved to Shearman & Sterling, while renewable energy specialist Karthik Kumar joined Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe.
