NRF global practice head to call Australia home

NRF global practice head to call Australia home

The global head of energy at Norton Rose Fulbright is relocating from London to Sydney in a bid to grow the firm’s energy practice in the Asia Pacific.

Simon Currie (pictured) will make the move in January 2015.

He claimed the energy markets in the Asia-Pacific region were of “critical importance to the global economy from a supply and demand perspective”.

Peter Martyr, the firm’s global chief executive, who is based in London, added that the decision reflects a “commitment to grow our practices across Asia and Australia”.

Currie has spent more than 17 years in London building NRF’s global energy practice. During that time, he has advised on major energy transactions in more than 50 countries.

Currie’s relocation has prompted a management reshuffle in the firm’s energy group.

NRF’s current head of energy in Paris, Anne Lapierre, will take up the position of head of energy for Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and Vincent Dwyer, head of energy for the Asia Pacific, is relocating to Singapore from Sydney.

The news follows a decision by NRF to shut its Canberra office by the end of 2014. The firm’s only Canberra-based partner, Vince Sharma, went on to head up Mills Oakley’s new Canberra office with property partner Adam Peppinck.

On 31 October, NRF poached banking and finance lawyer Dale Rayner from Clifford Chance.
