I am an associate in our International Employment Group based in Singapore, with an interest in and focus on employment-related disputes and advisory work, as well as company-related insolvency and restructuring.

As a member of the employment team, I tap on my experience in contentious as well as non-contentious civil, commercial, and criminal matters to provide practical, fuss-free advice and representation to my clients.

My litigation and advisory experience includes acting for companies and high net-worth individuals in employment, contractual and tortious claims, shareholders' and construction disputes, banking, insolvency and restructuring matters, and both white and blue-collar crime.

Outside of work, I take particular interest in studying (in particular, by way of consumption) the world of Scotch Whisky.
