Sam is a projects specialist, with extensive experience advising developers, contractors, financiers and governments on major projects and privatisations throughout Asia. He has particular expertise in the infrastructure, energy, water and wastewater sectors. Sam is also an expert in public private partnerships (PPPs) and drove Hong Kong’s first PPP project, advising the successful consortium to build the new HK$2.3 billion international exhibition centre at Chek Lap Kok airport.


“KWM has long been recognised as the leading construction practice in Hong Kong, having built a solid and top tier construction practice primarily known for its contentious capabilities. The addition of Sam and his expertise ensures clients have access to a full service construction and projects offering. We are delighted to welcome him to the firm” said Paul Starr, Head of Dispute Resolution and Infrastructure.
