King & Spalding has hired arbitration specialist Peter Chow as a partner in its Singapore office from Squire Patton Boggs, where he led the firm’s international dispute resolution practice for the Asia-Pacific.

Chow’s hire is the first lateral addition to King & Spalding’s Singapore office since the firm brought on board Andrew Brereton from Clifford Chance.

Chow joined the legacy Squire Sanders in Hong Kong in 2012, shortly before the firm opened its Singapore office. He moved to the city-state shortly afterwards. Chow was one of three high-profile hires Squire Sanders made from the legacy Bryan Cave. Prior to joining Bryan Cave, Chow worked with Baker & McKenzie in Hong Kong and the legacy Mallesons in Hong Kong and Melbourne.

With a practice that focuses on energy and construction disputes in the Asia-Pacific region, including China, Chow sits on the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR and the ICC (Hong Kong) arbitrator nomination committee, and also serves as the chair of the Energy & Resources Committee of the Inter-Pacific Bar Association.
