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.

Restructuring & Insolvency

The team comprises dedicated restructuring and insolvency lawyers with a wide range of experience in voluntary and contentious restructuring, including administration workouts in as far back as the period of the Asian Financial Crisis. Our experience covers workouts in various industries and sectors, including aviation, construction, engineering, hospitality, steel, rail and securities.

We have also over the years acted for various financial institutions as well as insolvency practitioners on a range of insolvency matters. They include highly contentious insolvency disputes that are recognized groundbreaking legal decisions.

The team’s recent notable experience includes creditors’ voluntary liquidation of one of the largest paper mills in the region and the former owner of the national carrier, contested receivership of property investment companies owned by an international private equity fund, contested judicial management of entities in the public infrastructure industry, liquidation of a major steel manufacturer in Malaysia and scheme of arrangement for an air transport company.
