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.

We are on your side. Contact us today.
