Construction and engineering expert Yvonne Foo has left Clyde & Co, where she was a legal director, to rejoin Harry Elias Partnership as a partner in Singapore.

She is Harry Elias Partnership’s first partner hire since its split from Eversheds Sutherlands in June, ending the three-year-old merger between the two firms.

Foo handles  transport and other public infrastructure matters, residential and commercial real estate and property projects, industrial treatment plants, oil and gas and other energy-related issues. She advises international, regional and local clients on construction-related disputes relating to issues such as variations, claims for extensions of time, liquidated damages, termination, risk management and more recently, COVID-related issues.

Foo first joined Harry Elias Partnership in 2007 as an associate, and was with the firm for four years before moving to Big Four firm WongPartnership in 2011.
