Biographical Info

BR Law Corporation logo

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.


Being subjected to investigation or prosecution for a criminal offence can be a highly disruptive affair for individuals and corporations alike. When faced with the threat of criminal proceedings, both individuals and corporations require lawyers who have deep experience in all aspects of the criminal litigation process.

Our criminal practice covers an extensive range of matters, including white-collar and blue-collar crime, drug offences, corruption, regulatory offences, and immigration and employment offences. We offer a full range of services, from assisting clients during pre-investigation and investigation phases to securing bail and conducting trials. We believe in providing our clients with critical support at all stages of criminal proceedings.

Our lawyers have a vast combined experience in defence, prosecutorial, as well as judicial roles. This provides us with a full understanding of the criminal justice system and allows us to take a broad perspective when identifying effective solutions for our clients.
