DWF partner joins Squire Patton in London

Rail and transport expert Andrew Herring has joined the US-based firm in London as partner.

International law firm Squire Patton Boggs has expanded its global infrastructure practice group with the addition of Andrew Herring as partner in the firm’s London office.

Having extensive experience in rail and transportation projects, Herring’s practice will continue to focus on infrastructure and PPP projects. He joins the firm’s real estate practice, which includes global infrastructure, and will report to Philippa Chadwick, who heads the global infrastructure group.

“Andrew Herring is a go-to international rail and transportation lawyer,” Chadwick said in a statement. “He has advised on some of the most complex global and UK projects and he brings a wealth of experience to our burgeoning infrastructure practice.”

According to the statement, Herring’s recent experience includes advising on PPP transactions and on concession agreements in the global heavy rail and urban metro and light rail sectors, as well as logistics and port infrastructure projects.

He advises both public and private sector clients, specialising in the structuring, procurement and delivery of major commercial and financing transactions and infrastructure projects in the transportation sector.

“Rail is undergoing a global renaissance, in traditional and new markets,” Chadwick said. “We’ve seen significant growth in our work in markets around the world; from the US, where we recently won the mandates for new P3 transport projects, to the Middle East and Africa, where energy and transportation links are priorities for numerous countries. Andrew will play a key role in supporting our global clients to deliver these essential projects,” she said.

Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Squire Patton Boggs currently has 44 offices in 21 countries.
