Niru & Co LLC had its genesis as Niru & Co. in 1978. It began as a specialist boutique practice with a strong focus on shipping, insurance and reinsurance.

The Firm developed and expanded rapidly to other specialist niche areas in Aviation, Medical and Health, Media (Libel & Slander), Energy (Power Plants, Oil, Gas and Minerals), Civil, Commercial & Corporate Litigation and Arbitration (Domestic and International). The Firm’s expertise and work cover both advisory and litigation aspects.

The Firm prides itself in providing personalised partner level service of the highest standards, in an efficient and affordable manner. Its mission has always been to put the clients’ interests first and deliver the best outcome. The Firm therefore is committed to extensive alternate dispute resolution processes to find the most commercially viable solution to any dispute. It shares the clients’ ideals of maintaining relationships in disputes.

The Firm also has a very strong international and regional reputation built over many years of working with major law firms and clients in cross border work. On its own, it has a veritable associated practice in Malaysia, Suflan T H Liew & Partners. The Malaysian operations are run along the same lines and by the same standards as in Singapore.

Like the Firm, the Malaysian associated practice also counts several MNC’s, PLC’s and GLC’s as its clients.

Niru & Co LLC’s lawyers have a well-established track record in handling shipping, insurance, civil, commercial and corporate litigation and arbitration. The Firm has to its credit several reported decisions in the Singapore Law Reports, All England Law Reports, Weekly Law Reports, Lloyd’s Law Reports and Malayan Law Journal.

The Firm has, to its distinction, several ground-breaking decisions over the past 43 years, including decisions in the Singapore Courts at all levels up to the Court of Appeal, the Privy Council in England and (through its Malaysian associated firm) at the highest apex court in Malaysia, the Federal Court.

The Firm has a long history and recognised track record in its specialist areas of practice.
