UK: Leading Insurance And Reinsurance Lawyer Returns To UK
Last Updated: 9 September 2002

Ben Macfarlane, a partner with international law firm, Clyde & Co, is returning to London on September 2 2002, from the Singapore office, where he has been based for the last three years. Specialising in insurance and reinsurance and in particular, credit and political risk, Ben is a fluent French speaker with considerable experience of the French Insurance market. Working out of the firm's London insurance and reinsurance group, Ben will liaise closely with the Clyde & Co's newly augmented French operation, HPMBC Clyde & Co, where he will focus on assisting in the development of the Anglo-French practice.

Ben's significant cases include applying for the winding up of pulp and paper conglomerate APP, restructuring debt at the AFP/GAR associated companies of APP within the Indonesian Sinar Mas group, assisting US lawyers in an action to enforce an award of over US $261 million against the Indonesian state oil company, Pertamina, and advising on disputes arising from the laying of a major gas pipeline into Singapore, the West Natuna Gas Transportation System.

Commenting on his move to the London office, he says;

"This is an exciting time to be working in the London and Continental European market. Clyde & Co's thriving operation in France, following the merger with HPMBC, has opened up considerable opportunities for the firm and I am very much looking forward to playing an active part in capitalising upon them."
