Suang Wijaya’s record as lead counsel includes securing an acquittal for a domestic helper accused of numerous theft charges and persuading the Court of Appeal to permit a novel application for financial relief consequential upon foreign divorce. An aggressive trial advocate with a keen eye on a good deal, Suang delivers – whether through favourable trial outcomes or negotiated settlements. Suang regularly advises on high-value contentious matters including shareholder and corporate disputes, fraud and asset recovery, employment disputes and professional disciplinary processes.
In 2014, Suang graduated with First Class Honours from the National University of Singapore. Drawn to the firm’s commitment to access to justice and the upholding of fundamental liberties, he joined Eugene Thuraisingam LLP. In 2018, after three years in practice, Suang became a partner of the firm.
Suang has interests in civil and criminal procedure, and has published in both these areas. Recently, he co-authored the annotations of Criminal Procedure Code 2010 published by Lexis Advance® under the Annotated Laws of Singapore. He was also a contributor to the book Same But Different: Legal Guidebook For LGBT Couples & Families in Singapore (2016).
