For over 30 years our people have forged a reputation for championing our clients' interests. We have represented major corporations, emerging enterprises and prominent families and individuals, sharing the belief that experience and empathy go hand in hand.
Our founding partners began their careers as legal and judicial officers in the Singapore legal service before moving to private practice. Over the last three decades, they have steadily built a comprehensive practice beyond litigation. We now offer a spectrum of legal-related services that includes corporate, commercial, intellectual property, technology, sports and media, and data protection matters.
Yet something that has not changed over the years is our culture of loyalty and tenacity. Our firm is partner-driven and offers accessible legal expertise with a personal touch. We continue to build enduring relationships with our clients. And, because litigation remains at the heart of our practice, we celebrate a culture of striving to prevail against the odds.

Civil Litigation (General)
In an increasingly robust and cosmopolitan economy accompanied by the evolving nature and scope of commercial transactions, our approach to litigation is grounded on our clients' trust in our ability to manage their complex commercial disputes, whether domestic or international and regardless of the subject matter. We understand the difficulties and risks of running an international business and we perceive litigation as playing an instrumental role in the prevention and resolution of those risks.
Yet we recognise that protracted litigation can sometimes result in Pyrrhic victories or jeopardise commercial relationships. We provide practical, bespoke solutions tailored to our clients’ business objectives by assessing the risk and cost of litigation against the relative benefits of mediation or settlement.
Litigation was the foundation of our law practice when it began and continues to be a major practice today despite our expansion and establishment in various other disciplines. Our litigation partners are dynamic and each equipped with at least 26 years of experience in wide-ranging areas of commercial matters. We offer a combination of legal insight, industry knowledge and practical business sense necessary to help our clients prevail.
We represent clients at any stage of a dispute in every industry sector.
