Chooi Jing Yen (徐敬彦)

Partner English and Mandarin

Jing Yen graduated cum laude from the Singapore Management University (SMU) in 2015, placing on the final year Dean’s List.

Equally adept appearing at all Court levels, Jing Yen has been endorsed by clients for his “sharp mind” and “calm demeanour”. His keen eye for detail and ability to juggle competing perspectives gives him a particular strength in civil litigation and arbitration matters. He has published in the Singapore Law Gazette on the striking out of frivolous and vexatious lawsuits.

Jing Yen’s pro bono practice includes assignments from the Legal Assistance Scheme for Capital Offences (LASCO) and the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS) as well as the occasional appearance at a community legal clinic.

Jing Yen holds a Diploma in Instrumental Teaching (Violin) from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, London and would be a music teacher were he not captivated by the practice of law.

“Jing Yen is an effective litigator. He has a good mastery of the law and is able to plan his long term litigation strategy very early into the suit.”
