For over 30 years our people have forged a reputation for championing our clients’ interests. We’ve 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.

Divorce & Family Matters
Every family goes through periods of conflict. Sometimes these conflicts are difficult to resolve and families part ways. Families are also increasingly globalized, such as where parents come from two different countries and the children from a third or fourth country, making such conflicts more complicated and drawn-out.
Our family and matrimonial lawyers bring experience, determination, and sensitivity to the table, assisting our clients through local and global annulments, divorces, child care and custody disputes, and more.

Some landmark cases include acting for a foreign corporation in expunging a registered trademark which was heard in the Court of Appeal and subsequently cited as precedents for trade mark cases.; successfully acting for a seller in a landmark property case which was also heard in the Court of Appeal and set the law on whether unauthorized works to properties constituted defect in title; acted successfully in an environment issue avoiding forfeiture orders which relied on a lacuna in the Environmental Public Health Act which subsequently led to an amendment in the Act and judgement was reproduced in an eminent publication of the then Singapore Chief Justice Yong Pung How; successfully defended in the Court of Appeal the principle that fraud vitiates all but not a judgement in rem relied on by bona fide purchasers of real estate without notice.
A full and detailed write up of her work experience can be made available on request.
