About the speakers:

Stuart Fuller is a partner in the banking & finance team at King & Wood Mallesons where he specialises in: domestic and global capital markets, securitisation and structured finance; financial markets and systems regulation and transformation, combining both Australian and global developments and their impact on the newly emerging business models for financial institutions; and global investment and trade policy and developments.

Prior to his return to practice in 2017, Stuart was the Global Managing Partner of the firm for five years, based in Hong Kong. In this leadership role he was responsible for the strategy, client and practice development and integration of the global firm across its 31 offices.

He has significant experience in the management of a global business, gaining unique insights from leading and managing an integrated Western and Asian business on a global scale, including the successful functional and financial integration of the Hong Kong office of the global firm.

Stuart is regarded as a thought leader on the global legal market and global financial markets. His experience also brings a perspective on the role of Australia and Australian business in Asia, and what will be required in the future for successful business relationships, including foreign investment and trade, between Australia and Asia.

In 2014 Stuart was named by the Financial Times as one of Asia’s Top 10 Innovative Lawyers in its inaugural FT Asia Innovative Lawyer report in recognition of his bold vision and his role in driving a strategy which connects Asia-Pacific economies to each other and to the rest of the world.


Craig Rogers specialises in the development of energy and resources projects, project financing, joint ventures and the acquisition and disposal of energy, resources and infrastructure assets. He has worked extensively across the spectrum of the commodities markets, including natural gas and LNG, oil and oil products, coal and power. 

In the LNG sector, Craig has advised extensively in Australia and internationally on all aspects of the LNG chain, including upstream developments, liquefaction and regasification plant ownership, use and operating agreements, equity arrangements, long-term and spot LNG and gas sale and purchase agreements and project financings. 

Craig was lead advisor throughout the A$25bn+ QCLNG development - the world’s first coal seam gas to LNG project, comprises myriad wells, gathering and processing facilities in the upstream, a 540km export pipeline carrying gas from the Surat Basin to Curtis Island, and liquefaction, storage and loading facilities on the island.

Craig played a key role in structuring and documenting the entire CSG to LNG supply chain, including acting opposite China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) on its investment in and offtake from the project (the largest LNG supply arrangement to China). 
Craig is qualified in a number of Australian jurisdictions and in England and Wales and his practice covers both cross-border and domestic projects.


The GEN A network brings together young professionals (under 35) from across the Asia Society Australia membership. It aims to give our young leaders access to leading business, policy, trade, diversity and cultural thinkers on Asia, through a series of masterclasses that draw on their industry and personal experience working with and in Asia. GEN A participants have the opportunity to attend regular Asia Society events over the course of one year. More >>
