3. Litigation Star and rankings

Benchmark Litigation Asia-Pacific is the definitive guide to the Asia-Pacific region’s leading litigation law firms and lawyers and provides an in-depth analysis of the legal players shaping the dynamic practice of litigation. Their publication solely focuses on dispute resolution in 14 jurisdictions in the Asia-Pacific region, including Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, among others and over 20 practice areas.

Alongside the firm rankings, Benchmark Litigation also recognises the work of outstanding legal practitioners under the categories of Litigation Stars and Future Stars. These recommendations are based on three criteria: the complexity of cases, peer feedback, and client feedback.

There were 151 Litigation stars recognised in Singapore, in 12 practice areas, including Dispute Resolution, International Arbitration, and White-collar crime, and other nine practices. These Litigation Stars are highly regarded by their peers and possess a strong case record and positive client feedback.

Our disputes-focused firm, led by noted litigator Eugene Thuraisingam, and includes partners Suang Wijaya and Chooi Jing Yen, was recognised as a Litigation Star in White-Collar Crime.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all our valued clients, business partners, and friends. They have entrusted us with challenging disputes and it has been our privilege acting for them. These recognition reflect our legal expertise, quality of work and talent, and commitment to our clients.
