Specialist Areas

Dispute Resolution

We are here to help our clients manage commercial and financial risk, and find practical solutions to their disputes, whether it’s through litigation, arbitration, mediation, or where possible, without formal proceedings at all.

Our team’s experience includes high-stakes corporate and commercial disputes arising out of shareholder relationships, M&A transactions and JVs, as well as financial disputes involving investment funds, complex structured products, financing and securitisation transactions, commodities, and market misconduct. We have also been at the forefront of litigating disputes involving technology, blockchain, and digital assets.

Fraud, Financial Crime & Investigations

Our team has acted in some of the largest and most complex fraud and financial crime matters seen in the region, from multi-jurisdictional Ponzi schemes, corporate diversions, bribery and corruption, to money laundering and international sanctions. With deep experience in this field, our lawyers are recognised in international legal directories as thought leaders and experts. We are also specialists in obtaining court-ordered relief in support of cross-border investigations and asset recovery efforts, such as freezing injunction, receivership, and disclosure orders.

We know that an allegation of wrongdoing can be a major disruption to a business and can expose an organization and its leaders to serious legal and reputational risks. We’re here to assist our clients to navigate these times of crisis by conducting effective investigations and provide boardroom guidance. We are regularly called upon by multi-national corporations, state-owned entities, financial institutions, and individual clients to investigate into corporate and commercial wrongdoing, armed with deep experience from having acted in some of the region’s most high-profile investigations.

Restructuring & Insolvency

We specialise in contentious, cross-border insolvency and restructuring work. Our lawyers have acted for debtors, liquidators and creditors in multi-jurisdictional headline insolvencies both under Singapore’s insolvency and restructuring regime and under foreign regimes such as US Chapter 11 proceedings.

These include, within the finance and investment funds space, acting for debtors in the Eagle Hospitality REIT restructuring, and acting for the liquidators of 45 Lehman entities across Asia (ex-Japan), MF Global Singapore, and BSI Bank; and within the commodities space, acting for the liquidators of Dynamic Oil Trading (of the OW Bunker Group), one of the most high-profile insolvencies in Singapore’s shipping industry.

International Enforcement & Asset Recovery

For many of our clients, a judgment or award in their favour may be the end of the adjudicatory process, but it is only the start of the most critical phase—obtaining effective, practical recourse against a counterparty’s assets. In an interconnected world where judgment debtors operate in multiple jurisdictions under the guise of complex structures, enforcement increasingly calls for targeted recovery strategies and specialised subject-matter knowledge in private international law, trusts, and procedure.

That’s where we come in, to help our clients to translate their victories on paper into tangible wins. We have acted for numerous state-owned enterprises, corporations and individual clients in the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments, as well as proceedings under the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards. We have also represented states and investors alike in the enforcement of awards under the ICSID Convention.
