International law firm King & Spalding has expanded its Asia-Pacific energy practice with the opening of a new office in Tokyo.

The founding partners of the office - John McClenahan, Mark Davies and Chris Bailey - join King & Spalding from Ashurst. Next month, Rupert Lewi will also join the firm from Ashurst.

"The Tokyo office capitalises on the momentum the firm has already achieved in the energy, projects, finance, construction and international arbitration arena," said the firm's chair, Robert D. Hays Jr.

Complementing the work of its Singapore office, the Tokyo office will advise on areas of infrastructure development and energy and resources projects. Clients include Japanese and Korean export credit agencies and financial institutions.

The Tokyo office is King & Spalding's eighteenth office and its tenth office outside the United States.
