The law firm of Sidley Austin has announced via a press release that it has added Tom Deegan to the firm’s global Energy practice. He will work as a partner in the firm’s Hong Kong office. Deegan has more than 20 years of experience advising clients regarding international deals in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, North America and Central America.

“Tom is a perfect complement not only to our team of lawyers throughout the Asia Pacific region, but also to the firm’s energy sector focused lawyers, including those who practice in our Houston, Texas office,” Thomas Albrecht said. Albrecht is the Managing Partner for the firm’s Asia Pacific region. “His experience and familiarity with cross-border issues will greatly enhance our ability to advise clients interested in energy and natural resources opportunities across the globe. Tom will also be instrumental in helping to coordinate legal advice for our energy-related clients who have investment opportunities either inbound to, or outbound from, Asia.”


Deegan said the following about joining the firm: “I am excited about the prospect of helping Sidley clients navigate the complexities of international deals, and I’m looking forward to adding additional value to the firm’s existing capabilities across its global Energy practice.”

Jim Rice, a partner in the firm’s Houston office and the co-coordinator of the firm’s Energy practice, said, “Tom’s recruitment underscores Sidley’s ongoing commitment to the continued growth of our global energy practice. Given the recent and continuing boom in the production of natural gas and oil from shale formation the U.S., which will support potential LNG export projects, the timing of Tom’s arrival is perfect as he can help us advise clients looking to capitalize on the opportunities this creates. His vast experience will greatly enhance our ability to assist Asia-based and other international corporations with their U.S. energy sector investments, as well as U.S.-based and other international oil and gas companies in connection with their global E&P activities, energy project development and finance matters.”
