As Singapore’s only independent corporate restructuring, insolvency, and special situations practice, BlackOak LLC is particularly focused on acting for stakeholder committees, debtors, liquidators and leaders of schemes of arrangement across broad contentious and non-contentious mandates. 

In the five years of its existence, the firm has acted in many of the landmark high-value debt restructuring exercises as well as insolvency-related litigations across jurisdictions, such as Duniatex Group, Hyflux, Agritrade, Hin Leong Group, Noble, Berau Coal, China Fishery, Bakrieland Development, Blue Ocean Resources, Nam Cheong, I.M. Skaugen, Mongolian Mining, Century Sunshine, Suntec Group and Kreuz Subsea. 

The team’s abilities have been consistently recognized in various reputable ranking publications over the years, and BlackOak – despite being a relatively young firm – has consistently found its way into the league tables.
