Our Practice Areas

Starting with just two broad traditional practice areas - Corporate and Dispute Resolution - the firm has since grown by leaps and bounds. We are now organised into a wider range of more nuanced practice areas catering to ever-increasing complexity in the law and transactions. Our lawyers specialise in both direction and depth across a broad spectrum of industry sectors.

We have established a number of practice working teams or groups, each headed by an experienced partner with a reputable track record, for the efficient delivery of our services. This ensures that clients are always dealing with familiar lawyers who would already be well-attuned to their needs. We regularly work across practice groups to provide synergistic and effective solutions in the most cost-efficient manner.

Employment & Industrial Relations

Our Employment & Industrial Relations Practice is recognised as a leader in the field by prestigious industry publications such as Chambers Asia Pacific and The Legal 500 Asia Pacific, with Tier 1 rankings for the firm and the team’s leading practitioners.

We represent multinational corporations, government-linked companies, statutory bodies, local public-listed companies and family-owned enterprises from an eclectic range of industries including airline, banking and finance, education, oil and gas, and telecommunications.

The services we offer are comprehensive and include legal advice on resource planning, staff migration and termination, employment policies and contract documentation, compliance with employment-related legislation as well as trade union disputes and employment litigation.
