Johannes is a skilled and reliable associate who has experience at all levels of the Singapore Courts. His main practice areas are white-collar crime, investigations, and constitutional and administrative law. Besides commercial crimes under the Prevention of Corruption Act, the Securities and Futures Act, and the Penal Code, he also regularly acts for clients accused of murder, drug trafficking, and sexual crimes.
He has been a key player in many notable successes before the Court of Appeal, including high-profile acquittals and landmark judgments in novel or publicly important areas of the law.
Johannes read law at University College London (UCL) where he won the inaugural inter-university Human Rights Moot 2014. His interest in moral and legal philosophy then led him to postgraduate studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), where he topped the cohort in several subjects and graduated with a Master of Science (Distinction) in political theory.
Before he had clients to act for, Johannes acted for theatre audiences. His professional theatre credits include Family Outing (W!LD RICE, Man Singapore Theatre Festival) and he has studied classical piano and violin with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, and musical theatre with the London College of Music.
Each morning he wakes up torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy it, which makes it hard to plan the day.
