Frasers Law Company further strengthens its team with the arrival of a new Partner - Gwen Brooker

Frasers Law Company (Frasers) is delighted to announce that Gwendoline Yi-Quin (Gwen) Brooker is joining the firm as a partner in its expanding Hanoi office.

Gwen is the newest partner joining Frasers Law Company after 23 years at TotalEnergies SE and 16 years at ExxonMobil Corp.  

With more than 35 years of experience in transactional work in the oil and gas industry across the board from upstream to refining and chemical, marketing, and latterly, renewables, she spent the past 6 years working on high-value international arbitrations and ADR spanning from institutional mediations and to participating in settlement negotiations. Her transactional work includes M&A, complex structuring and restructuring of cross-border transactions, and procurement contracts for multi-billion dollar infrastructure facilities. In so doing, Gwen has built up a vast network in working hand in hand with NOCs and has been credited with possessing good working relationships with NOCs. Latterly, her work expanded onto the emerging energy transition issues with a focus on ESG regulations related to climate change and defamation.

During her career, Gwen has been based in the UK, France, Singapore, Indonesia, and the USA and has advised on projects and complex transactions in every continent.

Along with a successful history of building strong teams of talented young lawyers, Gwen is very hands-on, highly responsive, and has a reputation of being a legal adviser with an acute focus on resolving business issues. She will be integrating a pragmatic business approach to the practice of law at Frasers.

“Gwen’s immense international experience in the energy sector particularly with respect to dispute resolution is a significant boost to our firm’s bench strength,” said Mark Fraser, Managing Partner. “Our clients will definitely benefit from her 35+ years of transactional and disputes experience with two of the world’s largest energy companies.” With a unique portfolio of ESG, disputes, and transactional experience, Gwen’s expertise further enhances the firm’s capabilities in providing solutions-based legal advice, particularly in Vietnam with an increase in dealmaking activity and foreign investment in the coming years.

Gwen will be participating in Frasers’ upcoming events such as the Legal 500 GC Summit Vietnam, Frasers Women in Business Breakfast Meeting as well as the firm’s Energy Breakfast Briefing on 12 March 2024.
