Marina Chua

Partner

Marina is a Partner of the firm. She was previously an associate in the firm’s Litigation & Disputes and Corporate & Commercial practice groups, and with her return to the firm she brings 10 years of valuable industry and sector knowledge, having spent her recent career as in-house legal counsel in the Energy and LNG sectors.

This first hand practical experience gives Marina invaluable insight and know-how of how the industry works. 

Marina was APAC energy legal counsel at the world’s largest corporate buyer of renewable energy. She is very well-versed in structuring renewable energy agreements to suit the unique regulatory environments of various jurisdictions across the Asia-Pacific region. Marina is also adept at engaging with governments and government-owned entities in the Asia-Pacific region on carbon offsets, sustainability and power capacity delivery. 

 

Apart from renewable energy, Marina has a broad range of experience in the LNG sector as well. Marina has led negotiations on behalf of multinational and local companies on agreements across the LNG value chain, including LNG sale and purchase agreements, terminal use agreements and gas supply agreements. Marina has also handled LNG price review negotiations and disputes on behalf of a joint venture led by a multinational oil and gas company.

 

Clients value Marina’s ability to quickly grasp the issues at hand, even where the matter is complex or novel, and her commercial, solution-oriented, approach to achieving clients’ objectives.
