Areas of Practice

We believe that there is strength in diversity.  The firm’s vision has always been to provide its clients a wide range of legal services.  Conscious efforts were made to maintain a presence in both civil litigation and non-litigation areas of legal practice, although it does not take on criminal litigation work.  As a result, the firm has managed largely to maintain even portfolios in litigation and non-litigation work, although lately, non-litigation work has understandably slowed down due to the present difficult economic conditions.  Nevertheless, this policy of diversification has cushioned us from the full impact of the economic downturn and we take pride in the fact that during these difficult times, the firm has actually expanded. 

Throughout its years of practice, the firm has gained invaluable experience in general legal practice and also other specific areas of law. 

Non-litigation

In respect of non-litigation work, the firm maintains a strong presence in the retail banking and housing projects sectors, and this is evident from its clientele base (see next paragraph).  Conveyancing (e.g. sub-sales of real property) and other related non-litigation work (e.g. joint-ventures) are also offered by the firm.   

Corporate banking, including syndications and Islamic financing transactions, has been a major strength of our firm.  We have also handled numerous corporate based assignments pertaining to share and securities transactions, corporate exercises (including restructuring and take-overs schemes), due diligence reviews, unit trusts and other instruments. 


Litigation

Insurance and negligence litigation has long been the mainstay of the firm.  We have built a considerable base among the insurance companies.  Our litigation department also handles civil litigation, particularly for banks, finance companies and credit cards companies in debt recovery cases.
