This is Scott Brownrigg’s first venture in the US, and represents a significant strategic move into the North American market for the firm, reinforcing its international expansion strategy and its commitment to further growing its global business operations. The new office follows the opening of its Singapore office in 2012, which Richard was also heavily involved with and continues to support. Richard will be working closely with Chris Blackadder, who joined Scott Brownrigg to head up the NY office, and was formerly a principal with Woods Bagot, to continue to develop the firm’s business in the US. He can be reached at r.nelson@scottbrownrigg.com or richard.nelson@abyssglobal.com.
