Hogan Lovells promotes two infra lawyers

Alex Wong and Scott Tindall have been made partners on the infrastructure, project and public finance team in the London and Singapore offices.

Two infrastructure lawyers in London-based law firm Hogan Lovells have been made partner, just a week after the firm hired two senior lawyers from a rival firm to strengthen its US infrastructure team.

Scott Tindall and Alex Wong will serve as partners on the infrastructure, project and public finance team in the London and Singapore offices of the firm, respectively, Hogan Lovells said in a statement.

The promotions were part of 36 promotions to partnership worldwide that the firm announced Friday.

The firm recently beefed up its infrastructure, project and public finance team in the US by hiring David W. Locascio and José Luis Vittor from McDermott Will & Emery. Locascio and Vittor both work in the firm’s Houston office and focus on financing and development of energy and infrastructure projects

Hogan Lovells said in the statement it has advised on infrastructure deals worth over $60 billion in the past year. Those deals included the S$1.8 billion (€1.02 billion; $1.4 billion) Singapore Sports Hub and the initial public offering of the John Laing Infrastructure Fund.
