Established 1883

‘Unique Boutique’ Specialist Disputes Counsel
Given our established reputation as a leading Litigation, Arbitration and Dispute Resolution practice despite our compact size, we have been aptly dubbed Singapore’s “unique boutique” by the Legal 500. We act for private clients and corporations alike in high-stakes cases of a scale and complexity familiar to leading Singapore and multinational law firms. We thrive on difficult civil, corporate and commercial disputes and complex international arbitrations under the SIAC, ICC, UNCITRAL and other rules.

In contrast to certain multinational or multidisciplinary law firms, we are a “pure” disputes firm, without any transactional or corporate departments. We are therefore practically conflict-free and able to act against multinational financial institutions and corporations, and even States. We are therefore frequently brought in by international and local firms to co-counsel complex litigation and arbitrations in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region.

Case Strategists & Problem-Solvers
We don’t just look for ‘the win’ in Court or arbitration, but also achieving that outcome efficiently in terms of time and expense, all the while ensuring a positive perception in the crucible of public opinion and the media. We therefore manage disputes holistically, by considering every aspect from a 360-degree perspective. More information on our 360-Degree Dispute Management approach is available on our website:

Virtual Advocacy & Video Hearings
Our counsel regularly appear in video arbitration and court hearings, as well as mediations, having received training in virtual hearing advocacy i.e. techniques for making persuasive video submissions to courts and tribunals, as well as examining and cross-examining witnesses effectively, over video-link.

International Reach & LEGALINK
We have international reach. We work closely with a variety of firms in other jurisdictions, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, South Korea, Indonesia and Russia. Also, being a member of LEGALINK, a global network of over 70 leading independent law firms comprising more than 3,500 legal professionals, we are able to collaborate closely with trusted, experienced overseas colleagues on any case that would benefit from their legal expertise.
