Law Firms to Watch in Singapore 2019

1. Introduction

In its list of Law Firms to Watch for Singapore, Asian Legal Business (“ALB”) has picked firms with less than 10 partners that are punching well above their weight in terms of work handled and professional legal services delivered.

2. Eugene Thuraisingam LLP listed in the list

We are pleased to announce that Eugene Thuraisingam LLP is listed as one of the “Firms to Watch (Singapore) 2019” by Asian Legal Business (“ALB”).

Eugene Thuraisingam LLP is known for being a premier dispute resolution practice specialising in disputes and investigations. Arbitration is one of the core practice areas of the law firm in Singapore. The firm has acted for an oil exploration company in an UNCITRAL arbitration against a Middle Eastern state-owned company in a dispute involving claims of more than $126 million and concerning petroleum operations in Southeast Asia; acted for a subsidiary of a publicly listed shipping corporation in a SIAC arbitration against a U.S. company concerning a charter-party dispute, and succeeded in obtaining an award of over $10 million for the firm’s clients; and acted for the CEO of a publicly listed shipping company in a High Court suit.

“SIAC’s 2018 statistics show that it has received 402 cases from parties in 65 jurisdictions and a total sum in dispute for all new case filings of S$9.65 billion. This is the second year consecutively that SIAC has received more than 400 cases. In light of SIAC’s robust growth, Eugene Thuraisingam LLP aims to take advantage of this evolving dispute resolution scene not only domestically but regionally.”
