White & Case has relocated one of its partners from Houston to Singapore as the firm moves to boost its energy offering in the APAC region.

Saul Daniel is a part of the firm’s global project development and finance practice. He has advised on various complex energy-related transactions, such as those involving project development, joint ventures and project finance. He has specific experience working with upstream, downstream and LNG sectors.

He has handled deals across the globe, including the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, from the firm’s Houston, London and Abu Dhabi branches. He is also a member of White & Case’s global energy industry group.

“Saul’s experience and skillset make him an extremely valuable addition to Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region, where we are focused on further developing our oil and gas capabilities and on enhancing our already strong reputation for project development and finance projects in the broader energy sector,” said Andrew Clark, partner and regional section head of Asia-Pacific EIPAF and disputes.

Clark said the time was right for Daniel to make the move given the anticipated growth of the energy industry in Asia.

“Singapore’s strength as an Asian trading hub, coupled with the expected further growth in demand for energy in Asia, makes this the right time for Saul to further bolster our energy expertise in the region,” he said.

Daniel said he looked forward to strengthening the collaborative relationship with the firm’s APAC offices.

“My relocation demonstrates the firm’s commitment to further growing our energy capabilities in Asia-Pacific, and will help expand our role advising leading international clients on energy deals in Asia-Pacific and beyond,” he said. “I look forward to fostering even great global collaboration with our Asia-Pacific offices as we respond to client demand.”

Partner Jay Cuclis, co-head of the global energy industry group, said that Daniel’s transfer to the Singapore office is one step in the firm’s initiative to extend the reach of its energy offering across the globe.

“We have a market-leading global energy practice with teams in all major energy hubs around the world and unrivalled experience of advising clients across the energy chain. Saul’s move from Houston to Singapore continues the firm’s ongoing expansion in the energy sector in the US and Asia-Pacific,” he said.

Recently, energy M&A specialists Mingda Zhao and Emery Choi were appointed as partners in White & Case’s Houston office—Cuclis said that both have represented Asian clients extensively. Energy projects expert Grace Fan-Delatour also became a partner in the Beijing office.
