    Tom joins from Mayer Brown where he has been a partner in the Construction & Engineering and International Arbitration groups since 2012. He advises on all aspects of construction and engineering law with a particular focus on complex disputes. Tom has represented clients in a number of different jurisdictions in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia and has wide experience of all forms of arbitrations, adjudications and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

    Simon Bromwich, head of the firm's global dispute resolution practice, said:

    "Both in the UK and across our offices we are continuing to see high levels of infrastructure and construction disputes. These cases typically involve our growing and highly rated international arbitration team. I am delighted to welcome Tom and am confident that he will help our global team to capitalise further on the major opportunities in the market."

    Tom Duncan added:

    "The strength of Ashurst's credentials and client base in the infrastructure and construction sectors, together with its significant international network, provide an ideal basis to help develop Ashurst's excellent disputes practice in those sectors. I have been impressed by the quality of the firm's infrastructure and construction disputes capability and I am looking forward to working with the team."

    This is the seventh dispute resolution partner hire for the firm this year, having recently appointed partners David Wilkinson and Alison Hardy in London, Emmanuelle Cabrol and Hortense de Roux in Paris, Nicolas Nohlen in Frankfurt and Melanie McKean in Canberra.
