Hogan Lovells has hired Matthew Bubb as the head of its infrastructure, energy, resources, and projects practice for the Asia-Pacific region. Bubb, who will be based in Singapore, was most recently running his own firm, Bubb Legal, in Melbourne.

With more than two decades of experience, Bubb advises clients such as lenders, funds, contractors, corporations and governments on project finance and acquisition of facilities in power and renewables, oil and gas, petrochemicals, mining, transport, and social infrastructure.

Bubb, who spent the majority of his career at Blake Dawson and then Ashurst, following the merger of the two firms, was Ashurst’s Singapore managing partner between 2006 and 2012, and then Asia managing partner between 2013 and 2016.

Hogan Lovells has been enhancing its energy and infrastructure capability in response to increasing demand, it said in a statement. “We are strongly committed to growing in the energy and infrastructure markets, particularly in APAC, and Matthew is a timely addition,” said James Doyle, global head of the firm’s corporate and finance practice.

With Bubb’s arrival, Hogan Lovells now has eight partners in Singapore.
