SINGAPORE -- King & Spalding has applied for government permission to open an office in Singapore to serve as the regional hub for its commercial arbitration and energy transactions.

Philip R. Weems, head of King & Spalding’s global energy practice, will manage the office. Daniel R. Rogers, an international transactions lawyer, and John Savage, an international arbitration practitioner, will be based in Singapore.

The firm’s chairman, Robert D. Hays Jr., said: “Singapore’s establishment as a key international arbitration center for commercial disputes in Asia, the Indian subcontinent and Australia, coupled with a steady increase in energy and infrastructure investment throughout the region, make it a compelling center for the continued expansion of our energy and arbitration practices.”
